Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Project
The Diamondhead Water & Sewer District proudly announces the construction project titled
“Diamondhead Water & Sewer District Water Meter Replacements” located in the City of Diamondhead, MS.
This project will consist of water meter replacements for every Diamondhead Water & Sewer District customer.
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is an integrated system of smart meters, communications networks, and data management systems that enables two-way communication between utilities and customers.
Advanced Metering Infrastructure systems are quickly becoming the standard for utilities around the country. These devices allow for more accurate water usage readings than the current manual reading method. The new meters will save labor time, prevent meter reading errors, minimize wear and tear on vehicles and improve safety conditions. Introducing automatic meter reading is one of the ways the District will better serve its customers and improve the overall efficiency of the meter reading process. This system will greatly reduce leaks and increase water conservation by alerting the utility office of abnormal water flow at the meter which will reduce costs of wasted water.
This project will commence on May 31st and will extend through September 2019.
There will be momentary interruptions in water service during replacement of the water meter.
Commercial establishments will be carefully coordinated prior to service interruptions.
The District appreciates your patience during this process.
In the event that you may have questions regarding this project, please contact the Diamondhead Water & Sewer District's General Manager or Business Manager for accurate and up to date answers which may not necessarily be found on social media.
