Watering Schedule Updated 8-23-2013 PDF Print E-mail

The water schedule for Belterra is as follows:

 

  • Residential, odd-numbered addresses: Monday
  • Residential, even-numbered addresses: Wednesday
  • Commercial customers: Fridays
  • Watering hours: Midnight to 10 a.m., and 7 p.m. to midnight

This  schedule only applies to automatic and hose-end sprinklers customers can water anytime with a hand-held hose.

Violators of the above schedule could result in a minimum $200.00 charge on your monthly water bill.  To help prevent fines the District may leave informational materials on the doors of homes where they spot leaks, improper water and other water wasting activities.

 

The majority of irrigation used for landscaping, greenbelts and medians in Belterra comes from storm water basins or re-use water.  Many of you will notice that shortly after a rain event several sprinklers in the greenbelt areas come on.  Many of the water basins in Belterra are designed to capture storm water and filter any pollutants by using irrigation systems.

 

While the schedule and other water-saving measures are extremely valuable during the current drought conditions, these measures are beneficial regardless of how much (or little) rain our region receives. Long-term, these conservation measures will save you money on your water-utility bills - and they help manage the region's water resources to meet long-term needs. The District appreciates your support in following these measures.

Water Rate Increase March 2013 PDF Print E-mail

Dear Resident of Belterra:

 

Hays County Water Control & Improvement Districts No.1 and No.2 (HAYSWCID) each have a wholesale agreement with the West Travis County Public Utility Agency (WTCPUA), formally the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA), to provide drinking water. The WTCPUA Board of Directors recently approved a water rate increase of 15.5% to all wholesale contracts, including HAYSWCID No.1 and No. 2, effective January 1, 2013.

 

This rate increase will directly impact each District. The Hays WCID Boards have reviewed the impact of this wholesale water rate increase on the Hays WCID 2013/2014 Budgets.

 

The action by the WCTPUA has resulted in a rate increase for all customers of the Districts to be effective March 2013.

 

The average monthly water consumption for a home in Belterra is estimated at 10,000 gallons of water, based on this average the anticipated increased bill be an estimate of $9.45 per month.

Reclaimed Water Use PDF Print E-mail

Belterra Uses Reclaimed Water for Irrigation

Hays WCID No. 1 and No. 2 are pleased to announce that we have begun using reclaimed water for landscape irrigation along Belterra Dr and Trinity Hills Dr. Our beneficial reuse program utilizes reclaimed water treated to some of the highest levels in the state, and can be used for non-potable applications in place of potable water or as a supplement to potable water.

 

Reclaimed water helps the citizens of Belterra conserve water supply for use into the future. It is a cost-effective way to improve the Districts’ ability to provide water for non-drinking water purposes and will be available even during times of drought.
