Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) is offering increased rebate incentives for two landscape programs benefitting homeowner associations and commercial customers.

The new rebate levels went into effect July 1 for the current fiscal year. All projects must be pre-approved.

The HOA and Commercial Irrigation Upgrade Program incentive has increased from $0.25 to $0.50 per square foot of converted irrigated area for replacing overhead spray and adjustable bubblers and emitters with subsurface/in-line drip tubing and non-adjustable, pressure compensating bubblers and emitters. Project sizes can range from 1,000 to 20,000 square feet equaling rebates from $500 to $10,000.

The second rebate assists HOA and Commercial customers in reducing their landscape irrigation water consumption. The program involves installing smart, weather-based irrigation clocks that automatically adjust their irrigation system’s run time based on weather data. CVWD has increased its contribution from 50% to 75% of the cost of the controller(s), up to $10,000 per project. Use of a smart controller automatically reduces the amount of water in the cooler months and increases the amount in the summer.

“By increasing the rebates, we hope to encourage more HOA and commercial customers to take advantage of our programs,” said Katie Evans, director of Communications and Conservation for CVWD. “We look forward to working with these customers to become more water efficient.”

Applications for the rebate programs are available online at www.cvwd.org/rebates or they may be picked up at CVWD’s Water Management Office, 75-525 Hovley Lane East, Palm Desert.

The Coachella Valley Water District is a public agency governed by a five-member board of directors. The district provides domestic and irrigation water, agricultural drainage, wastewater treatment and reclamation services, regional storm water protection, groundwater management and water conservation. It serves approximately 108,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, located primarily in Riverside County, but also in portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.
