ABILENE, Texas — The City of Abilene Water Utilities Department is began its project to replace the approximately 43,000 water meters across the city.
“The meters in the city are aging and this project was put in place to replace those and to make water-saving for the customers and also the city,” said Amanda Pope, Water Department, Public information officer.
At completion, the advanced metering infrastructure “AMI” project will give water utility customers access to live data, help in water conservation efforts, and ensure a better water future for the community.
“The accuracy and the improvements with these meters will alleviate a lot of the problems residents have experienced in the past,” said Pope.
The installation will be completed within 18 to 24 months. Work to replace meters will be performed during normal working hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
