Rain Barrel and Cistern Rebate Program

Rainwater harvesting is the practice of collecting rainwater from rooftops and storing it for later use. Most people use rainwater for landscape irrigation, although some larger scale projects use rainwater to flush toilets or as cooling tower make-up water. This practice can reduce potable water use while also helping to limit erosion and polluted runoff that harms our creeks. Just one inch of rain on a 1,000 square-foot roof produces 600 gallons of runoff. Rainwater harvesting systems and roof gutters should be cleaned seasonally.
Remember that harvested rainwater, whether from a rain barrel or a cistern, can never be considered potable and safe for human consumption unless the water has been properly treated and disinfected.
As of January 1, 2020, the District no longer offers toilet rebates. However, customers who purchased a WaterSense® labeled 1.28 gpf toilet prior to January 1, 2020 may submit a toilet rebate application until March 31, 2020.
