$30 Million Available to Help Households Conserve Water

The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) has announced a $30 million rebate program to help us make our homes more water efficient.

The “turf and toilet program” creates two rebates; a $100 rebate to replace one old toilet per household and up to $2 per square foot for lawn replacement.

You can take advantage of these rebates by applying online at www.saveourwaterrebates.com.

The $24 million turf replacement program is estimated to benefit 10,000 homes while the $6 million toilet rebate program aims to replace approximately 60,000 old, inefficient toilets.

With nearly 39 million people living in California, there is not enough to help everyone. Please act quickly to take advantage of this great new program. Drought resistant landscaping and more efficient appliances will have a long term impact on our ability to conserve water throughout California.

The “turf and toilet program” will be paid for with funding from the water bond approved by voters in 2014.
