The first week of watering, will see the installation of QR code stickers, which will be used by the contractor to log attendance and watering. This data will be used by the council as the primary source of monitoring supplemented also by officer inspections. Within the terms of the contract, should the contractor fail to meet there obligations, corrective action will be undertaken at the contractors expense.
