Rebates for WaterSmart Irrigation Devices from the San Diego County Regional Water Authority


Rebates for WaterSmart irrigation devices are available!

Owners of commercial (including Home Owner Associations), industrial, institutional, public and agricultural property that are served by the San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA) member agencies can access rebates for irrigation equipment to help reduce irrigation water use.

Under the WaterSmart Contract Incentive Program (WSCIP), the SDCWA is offering rebates for various innovative irrigation devices. These rebates will reduce the initial costs of irrigation equipment and help reduce the on-going cost of irrigation through reduced water use.

The qualifying irrigation devices and maximum rebate amounts are as follows.

  • Smart Irrigation Controllers - $35 per station
  • High Efficiency Sprinkler Nozzles - $6 per nozzle
  • Flow Sensors - $60 per sensor
  • Drip Irrigation - $0.20 per square foot

Need help? Access the program website to determine which makes and models qualify. Also, there is a list of contractors enrolled in the program that can help property owners earn these rebates.

The program was recently extended to ensure more people take advantage of the savings. However, the rebates are limited and are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Enrollment is an easy, paperless process. Find out how to enroll here:
