Rebate Could Come For Rain/Freeze Sensors

While all new sprinkler systems require them, the City of Amarillo is looking into paying you back for installing new rain/freeze devices.

And while the new systems will cost more, the utility department is hoping city dommissioners will approve a financial assistance program.

The sensors detect rain or freezing temperatures and then shut off your sprinkler system to conserve water.

The proposal is part of Amarillo's "Every Drop Counts" campaign.

The city commission will decide on the program next week.
