West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) announced the launch of phase two of its Change & Save program, a conservation and rebate program designed to reduce residential water and energy use, helping to lower utility bills for qualified residents.
For a limited time, West Basin is offering additional free water-saving device kits and rebates of up to $500 for qualifying high-efficiency clothes washers. In response to ongoing COVID-19 health regulations, West Basin adapted the in-home water evaluation portion of the program to be conducted utilizing a simple online evaluation form.
“The Change & Save program has successfully provided more than 500 families in our service area with
access to water-saving products and one of the largest rebates in the country for high-efficiency clothes
washers,” said West Basin Board President Gloria D. Gray. “We are excited to continue the program and
look forward to serving even more families in 2021.”
Qualifying residents who complete the online evaluation will receive a free kit that contains a high-efficiency faucet aerator and shower head estimated to produce a combined annual water savings of
2,000 gallons. They will also receive detailed information on how to qualify and apply for a $500 high-efficiency clothes washer rebate.
West Basin introduced the Change & Save program in 2020 to help community members use water
more efficiently, saving money and resources, while advancing environmental sustainability. The program is being funded through a $500,000 Water-Energy grant from the California Department of Water Resources, with additional funding being provided by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
