During routine investigations into the workings of a smart water meter today a lithium battery used to power the GPS on the meter exploded shortly after it was removed from the meter.

The cause of the explosion is unclear but what is clear the odour emitted from the device following the explosion can cause respiratory problems and injuries.

The batteries have to be changed on these meters after a number of years and given that the meters are close to gas mains today’s explosion has to be a cause of concern.

The cause of the explosion is now been investigated but one theory is that the battery may have come into contact with water or short circuited.

How long more can the Health and Safety Authority stay stum, and pretend there’s nothing wrong with these meters
