Weather-based Irrigation “Smart” Controller Rebates
A Smart controller uses weather data and site information to adjust irrigation watering times and frequency. More efficient watering means less waste, reduced run-off and healthier plants.

See our Program Brochure for more information. Sites must be pre-qualified through our landscape survey program.

*Rebate is based on the number of active stations of each existing controller.

Water-Efficient Landscape Rebate Program
Multi-family complexes, Homeowners Associations with common landscaped areas, and commercial properties that convert lawns to water-efficient plantings can get a rebate*.   The rebate is based on the number of square feet of lawn converted. ACWD is currently offering $0.50/sq.ft.  Please contact us to learn more.

*To be eligible for this rebate, customers must be pre-approved by ACWD, so please check with us first before beginning your landscape conversion project. Rebates are issued on a first-come, first served basis. Funding is limited. For additional lawn replacement ideas, please visit
