Irrigation Controller Rebate Program

Irrigation Controller Rebate Program

During the spring and summer months, lawn watering accounts for as much as 80% of household water use.  Improperly set irrigation controllers waste water which leads to higher bills.

The city of Georgetown is committed to helping our neighbors reduce overall water consumption which can also save money on their water bills. For customers with an underground irrigation system, we are offering a $75 rebate to our customers choosing to have their controller box inspected and set to Georgetown Utility Systems recommended specifications by a licensed irrigator.

Knowing how to set your controller box properly, and knowing how to turn it off during times of heavy rains can save you money.

The $75 rebate helps defray the cost of having a licensed irrigator inspect your system, properly set your controller and teach you how to maintain the proper settings in the future.

Licensed irrigators are certified by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.  To find a licensed irrigator in your area, you can go to their website: http://www2.tceq.texas.gov/lic_dpa/index.cfm

 

Rebate form can be downloaded here.

 

Rebates are processed on a first come, first served basis and will continue until designated funding has been exhausted.  Please allow 3-4 weeks for processing.  Rebate will be processed as a credit on your water bill.  Incomplete rebate forms will not be processed and will be returned to the customer.
