  • Help keep your utility bill to a minimum.  Reduce your water consumption in the winter months by TURNING OFF your irrigation system.
    • During these cooler months, water once per month, as needed.  This is not the growing season, so plants and grass do not need much water.  Generally rainfall will provide enough water that supplemental water is not needed.
    • Do not water during the heat of the day. 
    • During cooler temperatures and after rain events, turn the irrigation system off and run it manually when needed.
    • Visit Water Conservation and read the Water Spot blog for irrigation how-to videos, conservation rebate programs, and more!

Pour Over the Facts image_EPA_5-17-16

There’s more to your tap water than filling your glass. This short report will fill you full of facts.

Water Rates

Our tiered water rate structure is designed to encourage water conservation.  During peak summer months, May through 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.
