JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

If you live in the city of Jackson you may be receiving a new water meter.

Today during a press conference, Siemens Industry gave a demo of the automatic meter readers installation.

City officials say the new digital technology will provide a number of benefits including a faster, more efficient billing process, improved meter reading efficiency and the ability to do online billing.

It will also help with the city's infrastructure and water and waste water systems.

MAC & Associates is the company providing the meters.

"These new meters are going to help register the control of water a lot better," said Marcus Wallace, CEO of MAC & Associates. "It's going to help retain revenue and it's going to help save some of the citizens on their water bill."

More than 13,000 new meters have already been installed in Jackson's downtown and northeast areas.

64,000 total will be installed.
