It pays to save...
Water-use efficiency is a critical part of the region’s long-term strategy to ensure adequate water supplies. To help ease the transition to a more water-efficient home or business, several water conservation rebate programs are available for Vallecitos Water District customers. The rebates are offered by our water wholesalers and are listed on the WaterSmartsd.org website. This site is continually updated with the most current rebate information and also includes information about other incentives, tools, and programs designed to make the most of the region's limited water supplies. The links below list the most current rebate information:
Turf Replacement Rebates
Turf replacement rebates are currently offered through the San Diego County Water Authority's (SDCWA's) San Diego Sustainable Landscapes Program, which is the go-to resource to assist San Diego County residents in adopting sustainable landscaping best practices through education and training, technical assistance, landscaping materials and financial incentives. For qualified applicants, incentives will provide a reimbursement of $1.75 per square foot to replace water-intensive turf grass with landscaping that provides an array of environmental benefits.
Residents in San Diego County are now also eligible for the Metropolitan Water District’s (MWD's) Landscape Transformation Program. For residents, MWD is offering $1 and the Water Authority will add $1.75 per square foot for a total of $2.75 for qualifying projects. Businesses are eligible for $1 per square foot.
*For both programs, funding is limited and participants must comply with all program requirements to be eligible.
