Antonovich alerts unincorporated areas of benefits of water conservation.
To promote water conversation throughout the Antelope Valley, Acton, Val Verde, and Kagel Canyon, the Board of Supervisors approved a rebate program that encourages all customers in the County Waterworks Districts to install water-saving devices, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.
“My office initiated this vital program to provide a financial incentive for residents to install more efficient water-saving equipment for inside and outside their homes,” said Supervisor Antonovich. “Taking some simple measures can make a tremendous difference in helping reach the County’s conservation goals.”
The rebate program will offer money back for installing rotating sprinkler nozzles, “smart” weather-based sprinkler controllers, high-efficiency clothes washers, synthetic turf, ultra-low-flush or dual flush toilets, and waterless urinals purchased and installed on or after January 1, 2008.
Rebates for the sprinkler nozzles are $4 each and for synthetic turf, residents and businesses are eligible for 0.30 cents per square foot or $13,000 per acre. All other rebates range from $50 to $150 for approved product models.
In 2007, customers of District 40, the largest County Waterworks District with some 55,000 connections, voluntarily cut summer water use by 8 percent over the previous year by employing a few simple outdoor watering practices.
