High Efficiency Sprinklers & Drip Requirement: 

The Turf Removal Rebate requires that low flow rotating spray nozzles or drip be used in place of traditional sprayhead sprinklers.  We offer rebates on these to help you save water and comply with the turf rebate requirements!

DRIP REBATE:  Receive up to $175 on drip kits to retrofit planter bed areas.  Get up to 3 kits per home.  Can be combined with Turf Removal rebate. Commercial sites eligible for up to $0.20 per sq.ft. of converted area.  Apply on-line here.

ROTATING SPRINKLER NOZZLE REBATE:  Receive up to $4 per nozzle to retrofit existing sprayhead sprinklers.  These nozzles apply water more uniformly and evenly to your landscape.  Apply on-line here.
