STAGE 1 WATER CONSERVATION
Remember, the City of Boerne is currently in Stage 1 Water Conservation restrictions due to the hot temperatures and lack of rain we've been experiencing.

Landscape watering with sprinklers or irrigation systems is allowed only from 7 pm - 11 am two days per week, according to your street address. Hand watering with a hose or bucket is allowed anytime.

Click below for details on Stage 1 Water Conservation and tips for saving water. Let's all work together to conserve water during these dry summer months!
SEWER SMOKE TESTING
Weather permitting, Boerne Utilities work crews will be conducting a smoke test survey beginning Monday, July 9.

This testing will take about two weeks, and is a very effective way to locate leaks, breaks, and defects in the city’s sewer system. Residents may see harmless smoke coming from the vent stacks on houses or holes in the ground.

SAVE ON ENERGY COSTS THIS SUMMER
Hot temperatures have reached Boerne, and our electricity grid is working hard to keep us all cool. Summertime bills for all central Texans can sometimes play havoc on a monthly budget.

Avoid a higher than expected Utility bill with the City of Boerne's Average Monthly Payment Plan, which offers a more consistent monthly charge based on the energy you've used during the past 12 months. Click below for more info on the Plan and apply today!
