San Diego County Water Authority
Funding is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Lawn area must be visible from the street unless otherwise approved in advance. Rebate is $1.50/sq. ft. In certain situations, both the Metropolitan rebate and the San Diego County rebate can be combined for a total of $3.50/sq. ft.

Commercial, Industrial, and Institutional (CII) Rebates
Due to the recent volume of calls, the SoCalWaterSmart website that processes rebate applications has been experiencing problems. In particular, users receive an immediate DENIED message after submitting their applications. If you experience this problem while applying for a rebate, please try again tomorrow. If the problem persists, please call the SoCalWaterSmart Rebate Processing Center at their toll-free number, 1-888-376-3314, for assistance in processing your rebate. Thank you for your interest in using water wisely.
