Drop by Drop Landscaping Rebate Program

Up to $500 rebate for program participants!

Xeriscaped gardenFrom October 1 through June 15, the Drop by Drop Landscaping Rebate Program offers up to $500 to Pflugerville residents and water customers for landscaping improvements meeting the program guidelines.

The Rebate Program actively promotes easy, efficient, economic and environmentally sound water use and conservation. Since 2001, Drop by Drop has given approximately $28,000 in rebates to 93 homeowners helping beautify Pflugerville neighborhoods.  Native plant species, properly planted and mulched, help Pflugerville residents and water customers reduce future demand on the water utilities, while creating beautiful, low-maintenance landscapes.

Water Softener Replacement Rebate Program

This rebate program was implemented because of high Total Dissolved Solid (TDS) levels in the city’s wastewater caused by the overuse of water softeners. High levels of TDS are caused by the presence of potassium, chlorides and sodium in the water treated by water softeners

Irrigation System Evaluations

Irrigation systems/sprinkler systems can be double edged swords.  Calibrated and set according to the guidelines established by the water conservation department, irrigation systems can, not only water effectively and efficiently, but will help prevent wasteful watering.

System evaluations are performed for water customers of the city free of charge.
