AWU offers drought rebates
Wednesday, February 18, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
Even though it’s chilly outside now, Austin Water Utility is encouraging Austinites to plan ahead for the long, hot summer. As an extra bit of incentive, the utility is offering rebates for using mulch, compost and core aeration to help retain water (and reduce the need for watering). The city offers the following rebates: compost: 2 cubic yards or 54 cubic feet — $50; mulch: 2 cubic yards or 54 cubic feet — $40; core aeration service for entire front and/or back lawn area (equipment rental is acceptable) — $30. To receive rebates, customers must apply and follow the instructions available on the city’s WaterWise website.
