UPDATE: Due to high interest, funding for the grass replacement and micro-irrigation rebate programs has been exhausted. Rain barrel rebates are still available. Please check the San Diego County Water Authority's Turf Replacement Program and SoCal Water$mart Rebates pages for information on rebate programs offered through those agencies..
Several rebate programs are in place to assist City of San Diego customers with outdoor and indoor water conservation efforts. Replacing your lawn with sustainable landscaping or installing a drip irrigation system are big steps in reducing your water consumption, and rebates toward programs such as these serve as big incentives for such projects.
NOTE: If you live in the County (are not a City of San Diego customer) you should check with your own water agency's web site for rebate information or find details on the San Diego County Water Authority's Turf Replacement Program
Also, be sure to read all guidelines and rules associated with each program.
