Tucson Water announced Tuesday that it will offer residential customers rainwater-harvesting rebates up to $2,000.
Single family residential customers are eligible for the rebates for capturing and storing the water for irrigation and other uses, said Tucson Water spokesman Fernando Molina.
Some of the practices that could qualify a property for a rebate include passive earthwork features, gutters and downspouts, and above- and below-ground rainwater storage tanks, Molina said.
Tucson water offers two levels of rebates that can garner a maximum of $2,000 that customers can apply for based on the amount of water they capture and how it is done, Molina said.
Those who wish to participate in the rebate program must attend a free three-hour workshop on rainwater harvesting. Customers can learn about developing a harvesting plan, passive and active collection systems, and how to calculate the potential water supply, Molina said.
The workshops will be held at the Pima County Cooperative Extension, 4210 N. Campbell Ave., between 9 a.m. and noon on the following days:
- Tuesday, July 10
- Saturday, July 14
- Wednesday, Aug. 15
- Wednesday, Aug. 22
- Saturday, Sept. 8
- Wednesday, Sept. 12
- Wednesday, Oct. 10
- Wednesday, Nov. 14
- Saturday, Nov. 17
To register for a workshop, call 626-5161. For more information, call 791-4331 or visit Tucson Water's website.
