Water planning for Boerne’s future

Boerne has a superior water system that often is taken for granted. Our water utility has three sources of water that take care of our customers: Boerne Lake, Canyon Lake and underground wells. Over the years, that mix has changed, and more water comes from Canyon Lake than anywhere else.

In 2019, we started a water committee to look at water from two key perspectives: conservation and consumption. From a conservation viewpoint, what can the city do to incentivize and encourage practices that lower the per capita usage of water? Also, what can water users do in their daily lives to lower the amount of water they use on a day-to-day basis?

With conservation as their primary focus, water committee members heard from many experts on areas to consider, and they have delivered an excellent set of recommendations to the city council. In fact, those recommendations already are being worked into the budget cycle for the upcoming budget year that starts in October, and you’ll certainly be hearing more about those opportunities.
