Foothill MWD Offering Rebates
Foothill Municipal Water District (Foothill MWD or District) announced the availability of rebates for cisterns. Cisterns are large rainwater harvesting tanks typically used to supplement the water supply for landscape irrigation. They are substantially larger than rain barrels and constructed of durable material, such as reinforced plastic, polyethylene or metal. Foothill MWD collaborated with Hey!Tanks LA and TreePeople to develop the cistern rebate program. The offering of a cistern rebate complements an already existing rain barrel rebate program.

Rebates will start at $0.15 per gallon for cisterns that are a minimum of 300 gallons up to a maximum of $2,000 per customer.

Residents interested in the rebate program must visit to access an application. Residents are encouraged to read all program requirements and recommendations prior to applying. Submit completed applications to 4536 Hampton Road, La Cañada Flintridge, CA 91011 or email

Rebates will be on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are depleted.

Joint Use La Cañada Fields Reopen
Joint use sports fields in the city of La Canada Flintridge have reopened after a period of maintenance that included airification, overseeding and top dressing of all of the fields. This process is completed every month with more intensive treatments during school and youth athletic breaks. When the City took over maintenance of the fields in 2000, a program was put in place to bring current the deferred maintenance on the fields. Today the fields have a strong root system that allow them to bounce back after seasons of heavy use by sports groups. This maintenance program allows the various user groups such as AYSO Region 13 and La Cañada Gladiators Football to continue to serve the youth of the community.
