Rebates and Programs to Help You Use Water Efficiently and Save Money
To assist customers in conserving water and protecting property, the District provides rebates for the purchase and installation of pressure reducing valves and ultra-low flush (ULF) toilets. CHWD also offers a $50 rebate, subject to available funding, for the purchase of a high-efficiency clothes washer.
Sacramento County Cash for Grass Rebate Offer Information
The Sacramento County Water Agency (SCWA) offers a rebate to qualifying residential and commercial customers for converting existing grass/turf with native and drought tolerant landscaping. SCWA residential customers may receive a rebate of $.50/square foot up to a maximum of $1,000 per household or $1.50/square foot up to a maximum of $2,500 for commercial and industrial customers. Rebates will be awarded on a "first come, first served" basis as projects are confirmed completed. Find more information, eligibility requirements, and the application form here.
Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) Rebate
Citrus Heights Water District (CHWD) offers rebates to customers who install a pressure reducing valve (PRV) on their service connection to reduce incoming water pressure. To qualify for the rebate, a CHWD representative must be permitted to inspect the property to verify installation of the PRV.
Installed after the water meter at homes or commercial buildings, PRVs automatically reduce the pressure from the water supply main to a pre- set level (i.e. generally 60 to 65 pounds per square inch) that is more suitable for efﬁcient operation of irrigation systems, fixtures, and appliances. Higher water pressure results in higher energy and water heating costs, and can cause damage to plumbing pipes. For a copy of the PRV Rebate form click here.
Cost-Saving Rebates for Your Home
High-Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate Program
High-efficiency clothes washers can significantly reduce your energy and water use with savings of up to 43% in energy and 45% in water use over regular washers. That can add up to a savings of 3,000 gallons of water per year. CHWD is here to help with a $50 rebate, subject to available funding. Act now to secure yours! For more information, contact CHWD at (916) 725-6873 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ultra-Low Flush (ULF) Toilet Rebates
Customers may apply for the ULF toilet rebate when replacing older, less water-efficient toilets (3.5 gallon per flush (gpf) or higher). Customers may be eligible for a rebate of up to $75 on a new, ultra-low-flush toilet, which uses only 1.6 gpf; or on a new, high efficiency toilet, which uses only 1.28 gpf. ULF toilet rebates are part of CHWD’s conservation program and may be discontinued at any time, subject to available funding. You may claim up to three toilets per household.
