Water Rates

Our tiered water rate structure is designed to encourage water conservation.  During peak summer months, May thru October, customers with heavier water usage are charged increasingly higher rates.  Find current rates here.  Use our rate calculator to determine your monthly bill.

When needed, the City pumps water into Lake Georgetown from Lake Stillhouse Hollow. The City also supplements our lake water supplies with water from the Edwards Aquifer.
