MIDLAND - The City of Midland is looking for all the help they can get saving water including some outside help.

Back in November, the City of Midland brought in Freese and Nichols Incorporated to help with conservation efforts.

On Tuesday, the company came back with an incentives plan.

The plan includes offering rebates for various water saving methods and devices.

Incentives are also offered for rainwater harvesting systems and irrigation retrofits.

The company also supported the current water restrictions.

The $500,000 plan could save 550 million gallons in the first year and up to a billion gallons by 2030.

City council members haven't approved the plan yet.

They're still looking it over.
