Many water districts are offering financial incentives to help us reduce our water use. Depending on where you live, there may be rebates for losing your lawn, installing rainwater catchment systems, buying a cover for your swimming pool, installing grey water plumbing. The amount of "free" money available can be quite significant, so check out the rebates! The Soquel Creek Water District and Santa Clara Valley Water District both have excellent rebate programs.
