Rebates and Programs to Help You Conserve Water 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 is also participating in a limited-time cooperative washing machine rebate program with Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD).
Free Smart Irrigation Controller Program
Citrus Heights Water District is proud to partner with WaterWise Consulting and Hydro-Rain to provide a limited supply of complimentary B-Hyve smart irrigation controllers to our customers!
One smart irrigation controller, including installation, is available at no charge to CHWD customers who have a standard sprinkler timer installed. This offer is available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. There is a limit of one controller per District service connection. WaterWise must complete a free Irrigation Efficiency Review for the customer prior to installing the smart controller.
The application process is as easy as 1-2-3:

- WaterWise will contact you to explain the next steps and schedule your free Irrigation Efficiency Review and installation of the Hydro-Rain B-Hyve controller.
- Meet WaterWise Consulting for the appointment.
That’s it! If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
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 wate 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
SMUD High-Efficiency Clothes Washer Program
CHWD has partnered with SMUD to offer a $50 rebate through SMUD, subject to available funding. The rebate program and processing and payment of rebates is administered entirely by SMUD, and customers must apply to SMUD for the rebate. Before shopping for your clothes washer, SMUD recommends obtaining a current SMUD Clothes Washer Eligibility list and Rebate Application.

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.
