LADWP and MWD Offering Water Conservation Rebates on Rain Barrels
Posted by Councilmember Englander on August 28, 2015 at 12:00 PM
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), in conjunction with the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD), are offering the SoCal Water$mart Rebate Program, a residential water conservation program for our residential customers to promote the use of water conservation products. The SoCal Water$mart Rebate Program promotes reducing water use region-wide. Help conserve this vital resource by purchasing and installing qualifying products in your home.
Collecting and re-using rainwater from gutters and downspouts for lawns and gardens minimizes the amount of water flowing into your storm drains, sewer systems and local waterways. Plants and microbes prefer rainwater because it is naturally “soft” and free of chlorine, fluoride and other chemicals.
Go to the SoCal Water$mart Rebate Program websitebefore you purchase your equipment for an overview of available water conservation rebate products. All SoCal Water$mart Program rebate applications must be submitted online. To view a list of rebate offerings, go to LADWP Rebates & Programs.
