Stewardship and sustainability

Driftwood sets itself apart from all other Texas communities with its emphasis on sustainability and environmental stewardship. Austin is located in a critical groundwater area of central Texas, and Driftwood will reuse treated water on the golf course, eliminating the need to discharge it into local streams or creeks. Driftwood is also the first community of its kind in Hays County to require residential rooftop rainwater harvesting through a community-wide system for collection, with the rainwater then injected directly into the Edwards Aquifer.
