If you’ve been considering making some changes to your home irrigation system, or even permanently getting rid of it, now is the time to tackle it before summer temperatures divert enthusiasm away from outdoor activities and more toward air conditioning.
The Irrigation Design Rebate program is available to homeowners and business owners. There are a few very important facets to remember along the way. Home or business owners interested in the irrigation rebate MUST call or email SAWS Conservation to schedule a free consultation BEFORE any irrigation system changes or upgrades are made. *Any irrigation work initiated before the first consultation will not be considered for the rebate.*
Customized rebate amounts start at $450 for permanently retiring a non-functional irrigation system and could possibly exceed $2,000 (amount varies based on water flow and zones) for retiring a functional irrigation system. Based on system water flow, rebates (amounts vary based on water flow) for retiring individual zones start at $200 per zone, while rebates for converting spray to drip irrigation (landscape beds only) start at $100 per zone. Rebates for converting regular spray heads to pressure-reducing spray heads (grass zones only) start at $50 per zone and increase based on water flow of the system.
Remember: ANY irrigation system work started before the initial consult WILL NOT be considered as part of the calculations to arrive at the rebate offer. Call or email us BEFORE starting any work.
