Water Works Rebates Available To Customers
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.
