Water Meter Upgrade Project

Okaloosa County Water & Sewer’s meter upgrade project is a step toward a more modernized water metering system, which will help us all as a community to better manage our water resources. The upgrades will include replacing older water meters for new meters with Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). AMI uses a low-powered communication device that’s added to your new water meter to transmit meter readings over radio frequency. The Water Meter Upgrade Project will begin on November 1st, 2018, and it is expected to take approximately one year to complete.  Click here for full details.
