Did you know that Austin Water has programs that incentivize the collection of rainwater? Collecting rainwater in a barrel or cistern is a great way to ensure your plants are getting the water they need between rain events. Allowing rainwater to infiltrate on your property by using a raingarden (or other methods that “slows the flow”) helps trees get the water they need through a drought.

Join us for a virtual lunch and learn session on November 16th at 12PM, where Christopher Charles from Austin Water’s Conservation Division will discuss the Rainwater Harvesting and the WaterWise Rainscape Programs, from guiding you through the application process to providing insight into commonly asked questions. Help lower your water usage during the ongoing drought by using the water that plants and trees prefer to stay healthy.
