Smart meters will be installed in Beirut to reduce water waste according to the Director General of the Beirut and Mount Lebanon Water Establishment Jean Gebran. The meters will be installed for free, according to
. The current meters do not record the amount of water that is being consumed per household, and people pay a fixed price every month. So, individuals do not pay attention to wastage and do not regulate their water consumption. The smart meters will track the amount of water used, and the subscribers will pay for the amount consumed. These new devices have been already installed in Saifi, Medawar, the port area, and a part of Rmeil.
