Current Program News
All rebate program funding has been expended for the current Fiscal Year. No rebates will be processed until the start of the new Fiscal Year, Oct. 1, 2014. You may still apply for the programs, just note the rebate will not be processed until after October 1, 2014. See details on the rebate program page.
- On Oct. 14, 2013, the City enacted Stage I of our Drought Contingency Plan--it is still in effect. This is a no more than twice-weekly watering schedule. IF you are going to water your property, you must adhere to one, or both, of your watering days. No irrigation is allowed between 10am - 7pm. Hand-watering is permitted on any day. See the Main Water Page for the watering schedule. Please note, that you DO NOT HAVE TO water your yard, this is if you are choosing to. With the cool temperatures, twice a week watering is really too much; it's really best to turn the irrigation system off and just water manually, if needed, on one of your water days.
- Water waste is prohibited year-round. Water waste is defined as broken or leaking sprinkler heads, overspray into the street or parking area, water running off the property, water ponding in the street or parking area, broken pipes, leaking faucets, misting irrigation, or other controllable leak.
- To report a water violation, email the Water Conservation program or call 512-671-2872. Please include specific details of date and time of violation and location.
