City Invests $3 Million to Upgrade Water Metering System

Electronic Water Meter Reader

Beginning the week of February 28, 2022, the City of Pelham will begin a system-wide upgrade of the water system’s metering infrastructure. At an approximate cost of $3 million, this is a significant investment aimed at upgrading equipment and improving services by making the City more efficient in reading meters. 

A contractor was hired for this project. The first phase targets neighborhoods and businesses along the Hwy. 261 corridor. For the majority of customers, there will be no disruption to water service. If additional work is needed that warrants a service disruption, the City and/or the contractor will notify the resident or business before the work is performed.  We will do our best to minimize disruptions and any other inconveniences related to this work. Please pardon our progress. 

Contractor vehicles will be clearly marked, and city inspectors will be monitoring the work. The project should be completed in six months. As the work progresses, the City will notify the public when a new phase of work begins. Should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the project manager, Andrew Golden with Municipal Consultants, Inc., at (205) 822-0387.
