Siemens has signed a $90 million contract to upgrade water and sewer systems in Jackson, Miss., the Clarion-Ledger reports.
Brian Eason writes the company could start work as early as March, pending approval from the Mississippi Development Authority.
The company will install new equipment at two water plants, provide new meters, help the city change its billing system and use the remainder of funds to upgrade sewer lines, Eason reports.
Commercial customers will have the new meters first, followed by residential customers.
Siemens is using an energy performance contracting formula for this project, according to the report.
