The Water Conservation Program is promoting a rain barrel sale, that is going on now! You can log onto cityrainbarrelprogram.org to order any of the three rain barrel styles or the downspout diverters being offered through the program. Online orders only at this time.

Barrel Details:

  • The Downspout Diverter system allows you to divert water from your gutter downspouts without have to cutoff the downspout. (Not pictured here) Two different models are available at $15.99 and $21.

The last day to place orders is Sunday, Nov. 9. A limited number of extra barrels will be available for sale on the day of the distribution. Order today to ensure you get the barrels you want!

Any of these barrels are eligible for the City's Water Harvesting Rebate. You must be a direct City water customer to qualify for the rebate.

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.
