Water Conservation Incentive Programs

Conserve Today, Preserve Tomorrow

Water conservation isn't a choice, it's a way of life. Please visit Think H20 Now website for the best ways to save water.

Rebates & Education Programs

Each year, over 50% of the City's water is used to water landscaping, with most of this water being used in the five months between May and September. To help offset the significant stress placed on our limited water resources by indoor use and landscape irrigation, the City offers the following water conservation rebate and education programs aimed at decreasing high water usage, saving you money:
