In response to California’s continuing drought and the Governor’s April 1 Executive Order mandating a 25-percent reduction in water use throughout California, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) on August 12 launched new residential water efficiency rebate programs covering single-family turf removal. A program website has been established at for program information and online rebate application submittal.

To assist customers in conserving water, the District provides rebates for the purchase and installation of ultra-low flush (ULF) toilets. Our rebate program is also currently participating in a limited-time cooperative washing machine rebate program with Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD).
