Foothill MWD Now Offering Rebates
Foothill Municipal Water District (Foothill MWD or District) announced the availability of rebates for conversion of overhead spray irrigation systems to drip or microspray irrigation systems. Traditional overhead spray systems often cause uneven distribution uniformity and lead to water use inefficiency. Drip systems irrigate with flow rates as low as 0.5 to 2 gallons per hour and place water directly over or near the roots of plants.
The offering of a spray-to-drip rebate will be for a limited time only. Rebates start at= $0.20/square foot for conversions that are a minimum of 100 square feet up to a maximum of $1,000 per customer. A pre-inspection and post-inspection are both required.
Residents interested in the rebate program must visit www.fmwd.com/conservation.aspx to access an application. Residents are encouraged to read all program requirements and recommendations prior to applying. Please submit completed applications to 4536 Hampton Road, La Cañada Flintridge, CA 91011 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rebates will be on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are depleted.
