Pflugerville gets $100,000 grant from LCRA

Wednesday, January 27, 2021 by Tai Moses

Thanks to a $100,000 grant from the Lower Colorado River Authority, Pflugerville will be giving its water metering infrastructure a much-needed makeover and creating a customer portal. A news release from LCRA explains that the grant “will help replace the city’s current meters with advanced metering infrastructure and create an easy way for customers to monitor their water use in real time. The total project cost is $8 million.” In addition, the upgrade will “decrease potable water use and conserve water from the Highland Lakes. Pflugerville anticipates the project will save 92.7 acre-feet, or roughly 30.2 million gallons, of water annually.” Brandon Pritchett, Pflugerville’s public utility director, said, “It means a lot to have LCRA partner with us and approve our grant application for the full amount. LCRA’s trust in us will help us do the right thing for our customers.”
