On Friday, February 1st, 2019, Halifax Water’s Customer Connect team, with the help of our customers, achieved a major milestone with 50% (just over 42,000) of the Advanced Metering Infrastructure water meters installed.
Customer Connect is Halifax Water’s initiative to upgrade our technology, which will eventually:
- Increase customer convenience
- Improve our infrastructure
- Help protect the environment
- Prepare Halifax Water for the future.
The overall project will see approximately 84,000 meters, and the associated network infrastructure, installed over two years. The installations started in summer 2017, with a few hundred meters in Beaver Bank and North End Halifax as the Initial Deployment Areas. After this success, mass deployment began in the Halifax, Herring Cove and Beechvile/Lakeside/Timberlea areas.
Currently, crews are active in the Dartmouth, Eastern Passage, Burnside and Westphal areas. Deployment will start in the Bedford/Sackville area later this spring.
