Many water providers have a wide array of rebates and other water saving programs available for both commercial, industrial, institutional customers and residential customers. The Regional Water Authority (RWA) has received grant funding to accelerate the installation of water efficient fixtures and appliances including toilets, showerheads and clothes washers. Grant money has also be allocated for the installation of irrigation controllers and large landscape water budgets. A description of these regional programs, funding options, and incentive processing protocols will be provided. General water savings tips for commercial, industrial and institutional properties will be also included.
Regional Water Authority (RWA) is a joint powers authority of 21 water providers in the Sacramento region formed in 2001 to promote collaboration on water management and water supply reliability programs in the greater Sacramento, Placer, and El Dorado County region.
