water rebates

State Water Rebates

As part of ongoing efforts to help customers find ways to use water wisely, Cal Water would like to share with you some recently released information about two new rebate programs being offered by the state.
On August 12, the state launched and is beginning to accept applications for its Turf Replacement Initiative. 
According to the state, the program will rebate up to $2 per square foot for individuals who replace turf with water-efficient landscaping. This program has an overall budget of $24 million and is on a first-come, first-served basis for up to $2,000 per household. It appears that customers may combine the state’s rebate program with the program being offered by Cal Water, which offers them up to $1 per square foot.
In addition, the state is launching a new, high-efficiency toilet replacement program. The state will offer rebates of up to $100 per household. This rebate program has an overall budget of $6 million.
Information about both of these programs is available at
These programs can supplement Cal Water’s existing turf and toilet replacement programs. More information about Cal Water’s conservation programs can be found at
