Rebates are available for homeowners looking to purchase a rain barrel for their yards.
Capturing rain from your roof is a quick way to conserve water. A rain barrel can be set up underneath a gutter or downspout to collect the runoff and keep it for your landscaping instead of sending it to a storm drain.
The SoCal Water$mart program offers rebates of up to $75 on each residential rain barrel (up to 4 per home).
Visit SoCal Water$mart for more information on rebates from the Metropolitan Water District.
If you live within San Diego city limits and are a City of San Diego water customer, there's a second program available to you.
Funds for the Residential Rainwater Harvesting (Rain Barrel) Rebate Pilot Program are limited and dispersed on a first-come, first-served basis.
