ATX rolls out new smart meter program

Thursday, June 30, 2022 by Tai Moses

Nearly a quarter of residential water meters in Austin have been replaced with new My ATX Water digital meters, according to a news release from Austin Water. More than 50,000 of the new smart meters have been installed to date, and by 2025, the utility aims to have all customers served by Austin Water using the new meters. “The new digital infrastructure will provide a better understanding of how the entire water distribution system is performing at any given moment to enhance resilience to impacts from extreme weather,” says the utility. Robert Goode, interim director, adds that the new meters also help identify leaks and provide information “about areas with outages so that we can respond quickly to get things back online again.” Check the map to see if your address is on the list to receive a meter upgrade, and learn more about the digital meters here.
