Conservation Rebates

The City of Round Rock offers rebates to direct City water customers that are taking steps to conserve water. Thank you for doing your part to help protect the City’s water supply!
 
  • Rebates are available to direct City of Round Rock water customers (MUD customers are not eligible).
  • Programs listed below are currently available. Once funds have been exhausted these programs will be removed.

Residential and Commercial Programs:

Clothes Washer Rebate
Rebate is for the purchase of a high efficiency clothes washer(s).
Clothes washers account for 22% of the water use inside our homes. By replacing older models with new, front-loading efficient washers, water use can be reduced by 15 – 40%, depending on age of previous washer. Energy Star labeled washers use 20% less energy, 35% less water, and have larger wash tubs, which means fewer loads.
Irrigation System Upgrade Rebate
Rebate is for specific upgrades or newly installed efficiency components to existing irrigation systems.
  • Available to customers with existing, working, irrigation systems.
  • Applicants MUST have a working rain sensor/shut-off device on-site.
  • Rebate is 75% of the cost of the device(s), up to $500 per residential account or $1,000 per commercial account.
  • For full details see Irrigation System Upgrade Application.
Upgrading irrigation systems to be more efficient reduces water use and water waste while improving the health of our landscapes.
Irrigation System Check-Up Rebate
Rebate is for an irrigation system check-up or tune-up by a Licensed Irrigator.
Outdoor watering is the City’s highest use of water in the summer months, often up to 60% of our total water use!  By making irrigation systems more efficient, we can reduce water use, water waste, and improve the health of our landscapes.
Rainwater Collection Rebate
Rebate is for the purchase and installation of rainwater collection barrels.
  • Barrel must be made specifically to hold liquid. Home-made barrels (i.e. converted trash cans) will not qualify.
  • Rebate is for a portion of the cost of the water storage container, pad material, pump, pipes, and gutters.
  • Maximum rebate amount is $600 per water account, per year.
  • For full details see Rainwater Collection Rebate Application

Rainwater can be used for non-potable purposes such as watering plants and landscapes. There are many benefits to using rainwater – it is better for plants than treated potable water, due to higher nitrogen levels – reduces soil erosion on the property and helps conserve our drinking water supply.

Toilet and Urinal Rebate
Rebate is for the purchase of WaterSense Certified toilets and/or flush urinals.

Note: The toilet rebate program for residential properties will be ending permanently December 2018!  

Toilets are the largest water-using fixture inside a property; by replacing old toilets with efficient, 1.28 gallons per flush, toilets, you can save up to 4,000 gallons of water per toilet, per year!  You can save on wastewater charges too!

Commercial ONLY Programs:

Indoor Fixture Rebate Pilot Program
Rebate is for the purchase of WaterSense Certified showerheads, faucets, faucet aerators and/or pre-rinse spray valves.
  • Available to commercial, industrial, governmental, and apartment properties.
  • Rebate is up to $800 per water account.
  • For full details see Indoor Fixture Rebate Application
