The Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) has launched a new online feature to make it easier to participate in the agency's many conservation rebate and incentive programs.
CVWD customers who want to participate in one of the programs can now apply, make any necessary changes to the application and check the status of their rebate check online at www.cvwd.org/rebates.
The new online feature is easy to use and it will streamline the process so applications can be processed more efficiently. Customers will simply create an account, complete an application and submit. The new process will include an education component for customers who want to learn more before they get started. Those who have an online account for paying bills will need to create a separate account specifically for conservation programs.
CVWD offers several conservation programs to help customers reduce water use. Due to the statewide drought and increased interest in water conservation, the programs are more popular than they have ever been.
CVWD has allocated $4.7 million to fund the programs this fiscal year, up from $3.2 million the previous year.
If you previously applied for one of the above programs, you do not need to re-apply. You will receive an email asking you to create a password and log-in to view the status of your application.
Customers who do not have computer access will be able to apply for programs through the mail or by phone by calling (888) 871-1660.
