Here are a few of the rebates they currently offer:

The Landscape Survival Tools Rebate encourages customers to improve their landscapes using mulch, compost, and core aeration. Eligible applicants can receive up to $120 in rebates.

Take advantage of their Rainwater Harvesting Rebate. This rebate offers customers up to $5,000 to help purchase equipment for capturing rainwater.

For customers looking to transform their landscape, you’ll want to check out Austin Water’s WaterWise rebate programs.

  • The WaterWise Landscape Rebate encourages customers to convert healthy turf grass to native plant beds that require less water.
  • The WaterWise Rainscape Rebate helps customers install landscape features such as raingardens, berms, terraces, and swales to promote better absorption during rain events.

They encourage City of Austin employees to apply for one or multiple rebates to maximize their water and money savings. Before starting a project or purchasing any equipment, make sure to read through the eligibility requirements and guidelines found on each rebate application.

It takes a lot of blue to stay green. Conserving water today means protecting our water supply for generations to come.
