Pflugerville offering residents a water bill credit, but there’s a catch

Tap water

PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (KXAN) — If you live in Pflugerville and have a home that was built after 1983, the city needs your help with a water test.

The city says it needs 228 residents to participate in a Lead and Copper test. The first 228 residents who meet all criteria and go through the process will receive a $50 credit on their water bill.

What do you need to be eligible? You must live in a home that was built after 1983. You cannot have a water softener (unless you’re willing to turn it off for a few days). You cannot be a Windemere or Manville water customer.

If you’re interested, email sampling@pflugervilletx.gov or call Public Works at 512-990-6400. Leave your name, address and phone number and we will contact you with details.

If you’re chosen, Pflugerville’s Public Works will deliver a sample bottle to your home where you’ll fill the bottle with water from your faucet.

A city spokesperson says the city is required to conduct water tests every three years, which is required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. In the past, the city only needed 50 samples abut now that the population has grown, the city needs a larger sample size.
