Wastewater averaging is calculated from mid-Nov. to mid-Mar. when most of the water goes directly into the sanitary sewer system versus being used for outdoor watering. Visit the wastewater averaging page for more information.
The Austin community has risen to meet challenges posed by drought to protect our water resources. To continue to meet these challenges and plan for a rapidly growing population and changing climate, Austin Water is working with other city departments, a citizen task force, and the community to develop a water plan for the next century. Get involved with Water Forward and take our brief Water Forward Survey.
Did you know Austin Water is the steward of the city’s wildlands? Our wildlands help filter the water that flows through them and protects the animals that call the wildlands home. Sign-up for a hike or learn more about our Center for Environmental Research at Hornsby Bend.
