The Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans will soon start replacing all of the city's water meters and pipe lines as part of several projects that are now underway, according to Joe Becker, general superintendent of the board.

The changes come as the board increases efforts to improve response times, manage better customer service and use money that was provided by FEMA to fix infrastructure damaged by hurricanes, Becker said.
