Water conservation ordinance could save hundreds per household


Starting in April, Lewisville enacted a water conservation credit program to reward residents for making water-smart investments. Residents could save as much as $375 per year on their water bill as compensation. The program is detailed on the city website here.

Residents can receive up to $25 for a moisture sensor, up to $75 for a WaterSense certified irrigation controller, up to $125 for a tier 3 high efficiency washing machine, up to $25 for a rain barrel — limited to two per household — and up to $30 and $50 for low flow showerheads and low flow toilets, which are limited at three per household.

The program was adopted at the April 3 City Council meeting.
