(New Braunfels, TX – April 1, 2022) New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) customers can now “round-up” their bill each month to help support the Headwaters at the Comal, NBU’s conservation legacy project whose mission is to strengthen the relationship between our community and nature, showcasing the significance of the Comal Springs. More information about the Headwaters at the Comal can be found at https://headwatersatthecomal.org.
When NBU customers voluntarily opt-in and enroll in the Program, they will have their monthly utility bill rounded up to the next whole dollar, with the difference being donated to the Headwaters at the Comal. Monthly donations per account will be between one and ninety-nine cents, with yearly donations not exceeding $11.88. For example, if your utility bill is $81.48, it will automatically round up to $82.00, and the remaining $.52 will be donated to the Round Up Program.
New Braunfels Utilities’ customers can begin enrolling in the Program now. Those who opt-in will see their first donation reflected on their May 2022 statement. The “opt-in” to NBU’s Round Up Program will be reflected on the bill after the NBU utility charges and before the City Services charges.
To learn more about enrolling in the Round Up Program and how your small change can make a big difference, visit nbutexas.com/round-up, or call 830.629.8400 and an NBU Customer Service Representative will assist you.
