Additional Rebates Available for Eligible Water Saving Programs

Inland Empire

Last week, in their ongoing efforts to provide a long-term response to protecting California’s water resources, the Inland Empire Utilities Agency and Metropolitan Water District announced the availability of new funding for the Landscape Transformation Program.

The ongoing Landscape Transformation Program (LTP) provides commercial and residential applicants with rebates of $1 for each square foot of turf replaced with water efficient native plants and irrigation systems. Applicants who reside in the Inland Empire Utilities Agency’s (IEUA) service area are eligible for an additional $1 per square foot, totaling $2 for each square foot replaced.

IEUA Board President Steve Elie stated, “This program provides an extra incentive for residents and businesses to contribute to saving our limited water resources. In 2014, the program successfully replaced 160 million square feet of grass during the drought.” He added, “Every drop counts and these water-wise decisions will help increase drought resiliency throughout the region.”

One application is allowed per service address, per year. To qualify, customers must plant a minimum of five plants per 100 square feet of land and have a minimum of 250 square feet of turf removed. If the space is under 250 square feet, all turf must be removed. For additional information on eligible items, guidelines, qualifications, and the application process, please visit www.socalwatersmart.com.

The IEUA covers 242-square miles, distributes imported water, provides industrial/municipal wastewater collection and treatment services, and other related utility services to more than 875,000 people through its member agencies. Those agencies serve Chino, Chino Hills, Cucamonga Valley Water District, Fontana, Fontana Water Company, Montclair, Monte Vista Water District, Ontario, and Upland.

Both MWD and IEUA offer funding for additional incentives as well. The incentives include funding for high-efficiency washing machines, premium high-efficiency toilets, weather-based irrigation controllers, and more. To learn more about the additional rebate programs available visit www.ieua.org.
