The City of Midland is currently in the process of replacing the old water meters.

According to NewsWest 9, the new water meters will also allow citizens to track their water usage hourly.

The automated meter infrastructure or AMI is being installed all over the city but there is no specific date that the online system or customer portal will be available.

"We don’t have a very specific date. We’re hoping it will be within the next six months or so. That’s our hope, but with things being what they are right now it’s kind of set everybody back," said Tony Goyang, division manager of the City of Midland Water Department.
