Georgetown Offering Rebate on Smart Irrigation Controllers

GEORGETOWN – The Georgetown Water Department has put a rebate program in place to help curb the waste of water through the use of smart irrigation controllers.
A smart irrigation controller acts like a thermostat for a sprinkler system telling it when to turn on and off, using local weather and landscape conditions to tailor watering schedules to match actual conditions. Instead of irrigating using a controller with a clock and a preset schedule, smart irrigation controllers allow watering schedules to better match water needs.
Georgetown Water is offering a $50 rebate for residential customers who install a qualified smart irrigation controller. More information on the rebate program can be found at
With proper installation, programming and maintenance, homeowners can use smart irrigation controllers instead of standard clock-timer controllers on their existing systems and not have to worry about wasted water.
Utilizing these systems has lowered water use by up to 30% in some instances, which can help reduce water bills and help conserve the town’s water supply.
“These smart tools allow users to conserve water while ensuring their lawns are adequately cared for,” said Utility Director Marlene Ladderbush. “I hope that residents will take advantage of this rebate opportunity, which will help further offset the cost of these systems along with the savings on water bills.”
