Phoenix Water Services Department Announces New Financial Incentives for Water Conservation
To promote sustainable water use and conservation, the Phoenix Water Services Dept. is introducing new financial incentives for residents. These incentives are aimed at encouraging the adoption of high-efficiency appliances and fixtures, saving water, and reducing household expenses.
Residents can begin the application process by visiting the Water Conservation Incentives webpage.
Key Highlights of the Incentive Program:
Water-Efficient Toilets: Residents can receive a $75 rebate for the purchase and installation of a new EPA WaterSense-labeled toilet of 1.28 Gallons Per Flush (GPF) or less.
Smart Irrigation Controller: A $75 incentive is available for the purchase and installation of an EPA WaterSense-labeled smart irrigation controller.
Both these devices can lead to an estimated saving of approximately 10,000 gallons of water per year for each household.
Free Xeriscape Plans Available Now
Additionally, the City of Phoenix has released three free desert landscape plans for residents to implement at home. Native plants are a great way to save water and money. By choosing desert plants, residents can reduce outdoor water use by 85%. These plans are an example of the conservation team’s many program developments to come, with a greater focus on designing water-saving solutions that can easily be accomplished by residents.
