The Austin City Council approved contracts on March 26, 2020, paving the way for Austin Water to modernize its water metering system. Over the next five years, the project will replace more than 230,000 analog water meters with electronically read water meters connected to a wireless network. The project will also develop a customer portal with near-real time water use data where customers can sign-up for customized notifications.
Austin Water will notify customers when their installation is scheduled. Customers can expect to receive much more information in the coming months.
