Water

 

The Utilities and Environmental Services Department is committed to providing customers with water that is safe to drink, readily available and of excellent quality.

Effective May 29, 2015, Round Rock is no longer under MANDATORY water restrictions. All restrictions were lifted when the lakes were filled over the Memorial Day weekend rains.  If you choose to run your irrigation system, you are still encouraged to follow the watering schedule outlined below, and not water during the heat of the day (10am – 7pm).

Property Type Watering Days
Residential Odd-Numbered Address Wednesday and/or Saturday
Residential Even-Numbered Address Thursday and/or Sunday
Commercial, Industrial, Multifamily, Institutional, Government Tuesday and/or Friday

To learn ways you can use less water, please visit Water Conservation and read the Water Spot blog for irrigation how-to videos, recommended watering schedules, and more!

Water Concerns

For water leaks, water pressure issues, or any other water questions or concerns, contact our Waterline Maintenance Division at 512-218-5555 and a staff member will gladly assist you.

Water Rates

Our tiered water rate structure is designed to encourage water conservation.  During peak summer months, May thru September, customers with heavier water usage are charged increasingly higher rates.  To estimate how much your water bill could be, use the calculator at roundrocktexas.gov/mybill.  Find current rates here.

 

Water Use, Water Sources

The chart below shows daily use (in millions of gallons) of our water customers.

The chart below shows the current level at Lake Georgetown, where Round Rock gets most of its water.

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.
