Residents, businesses and agricultural producers living in the unincorporated areas of San Diego County can rake in some big cash for being water efficient.
A new program announced by the County in partnership with the San Diego County Water Authority makes additional rebate funding available to unincorporated County residents for water-saving devices and other landscape upgrades.
The goal of the program is to incentivize landscape upgrades that reduce water use, enhance habitat and hold rainfall on a property to reduce the flow of polluted stormwater into the region’s waterways.
The newly enhanced rebates include:
- $3 per square foot for turf replacement
- $60 per smart controller station
- $65 per rain barrel
- Up to $450 for rain-harvesting cisterns
The program also offers technical assistance for customers who want to upgrade larger landscapes on multifamily and commercial properties and a cost-share with agricultural growers to make water-saving upgrades.
Customers in unincorporated San Diego County can determine their eligibility at SanDiegoCounty.gov/WatershedRebates.
