On September 15, the City of Round Rock is participating in “Imagine a Day Without Water,” an effort to educate the public about the water infrastructure crisis currently facing the United States. Organized by the Value of Water Coalition, hundreds of organizations across the country will partake in events aimed at raising awareness about the crucial need for investment to ensure that no community in America is left without water and the infrastructure that brings it to and from homes and businesses.
Here, in Round Rock, we will be providing a tour of the City’s Water Treatment Plant at 5:30pm. Space is limited, so sign up by emailing the plant manager to reserve your spot! We will also have information booths on the City’s water, wastewater, stormwater, and conservation programs for interested residents to visit at the library on September 15th from 10am – 4pm.
- Water Block Rates or tiered rates are in effect May through October. Although the City is not currently under water restrictions, any usage over 18,000 gallons a month is charged at a higher rate. Use our rate calculator to determine your monthly bill.
