LADWP Water Conservation Rebate Program!

With summer officially here and temperatures on the rise in Los Angeles, LADWP is urging customers to kick their water conservation efforts into high gear to help reduce spiking seasonal demand.

“This year’s near record-low snow season in the Eastern Sierra underscores the unpredictable nature of snow and rainfall from year to year,” said James B. McDaniel, Senior Assistant General Manager of the LADWP Water System. “Our customers have done a great job of integrating water conservation into their daily lives and now we just need to continue that trend. For those customers who haven’t cut back, now is the time to adjust your sprinklers, check for leaks and really take steps to reduce your use. For those who have reduced their use, keep it up, and look for even more ways to save.”

To encourage conservation, LADWP is relaunching its Water Conservation Rebate Program to help residential and business customers conserve water. Beginning July 1st, 20 rebate incentives will be available to LADWP customers, including the very popular High Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate ($300 rebate) and the Weather-Based Irrigation Controller Rebate, which offers up to $200 for properties under one acre in size.

The California-Friendly Landscape Incentive, another customer favorite, will also relaunch On July 1 and will offer $1 per square foot to replace water-thirsty lawns with California-friendly landscape, artificial turf or water permeable hardscape. Since the LADWP first began offering this program in 2009, over 689 projects have been completed, resulting in the removal of nearly one million square feet of lawn turf.

The best way for customers to lower their bills is to conserve wherever they can. Unlike many other water utilities, LADWP charges customers only for the amount of water used and does not charge a monthly water service or meter fee. Therefore, every gallon of water saved will mean a savings on the customer’s bill.

LADWP reminds customers who use water for landscaping to continue on a three-day-a-week irrigation schedule, which is sufficient watering to keep plants and lawns healthy. Customers with street addresses ending in an odd number are allowed to water on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while those with addresses ending in an even number are allowed to water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
