2015 PROGRAM UPDATE
Water rebate applications received between July 1 and Dec. 31, 2015 will be processed within eight weeks of receipt; however, due to changes in our budget, credit for qualifying applications will not be applied to customers' accounts until the first quarter of 2016.
Smart irrigation controllers
The controllers, which act like a thermostat for your sprinkler system telling it when to turn on and off, use local weather and landscape conditions to tailor watering schedules to actual conditions on the site. Instead of using a controller with a clock and a preset schedule, WaterSense labeled controllers allow watering schedules to better match plants' water needs.
WaterSense qualified smart irrigation controllers can reduce irrigation water use by an average of 16 percent.
Drip converstion rebate
Drip irrigation is a type of highly-efficient irrigation that delivers water from the irrigation pipe directly to the soil at the root zone of the plant. Our new drip conversion rebate returns a portion of the cost of drip irrigation equipment to customers converting high-water use landscaping to low-water use landscaping.
To earn up to $1,000 in rebates, you must convert at least one full spray or rotor irrigation zone to drip irrigation.
Qualifying rebate products drip pipe (one-half inch or greater), inline drip pipe (one-half inch or greater), emitters, pressure regulators and filters.
High-efficiency matched preciptation nozzles
These nozzles deliver water much more slowly and evenly than conventional spray heads. The larger droplet size improves sprinkler performance and improves distribution uniformity. This allows water to soak into the landscape so your grass and plants get the water they need, while reducing overall water usage.
High-efficiency matched precipitation nozzles are 20 to 30 percent more efficient than conventional spray heads and can save up to 5 to 10 percent of landscape water use.
Pressure-regulating sprinkler heads with check valves
Eliminate water waste from low head drainage with check valves. They also provide a simple solution for high pressure problems. Pressure regulation minimizes water waste from misting and fogging. These heads can reduce landscape water use by 10 percent.
