A milestone for Evansville's Smart City 2.0 initiative. City officials installed the first two automated water meters on Boeke Ave. today.

They're part of Evansville's new state of the art Automated Meter Reading (AMR) system to replace old water meters citywide. Officials say the system will allow the Water and Sewer Utility to record water usage more accurately.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke says the new meters will create an economic boost for Evansville.

"One of the many upsides of this project, and there are many," said Mayor Winnecke, "is the fact we're going to create 170 new jobs during this construction phase. This is a period of time when, although the city's unemployment rate is the lowest it's been in five years, the more opportunities we can put people to work the better."

Smart City 2.0 also includes updates to the city's waste water treatment system.
