Water Wise House Call
Are you looking to increase water efficiency in your landscape? Are you intimidated by your irrigation controller (that strange box on your wall in the garage)? You are in luck, the City of West Sacramento offers a free Water Wise House Call.
You will receive a no-cost survey of your outdoor landscape system. This survey includes: usage history*, soil type, irrigation layout, water pressure, problems (like broken or misaligned sprinkler heads), potential water savings, suggested controller settings and more. Each survey will have an easy-to-read summary of the most important issues found during the House Call, and what you can do about it.
In addition to a free survey, residents may also qualify for a free sprinkler nozzle starter kit. This kit is a set of 10 highly efficient nozzles that twist right onto existing sprinklers. Staff will help you determine which models you need and how to schedule them for maximum efficiency.
To apply, fill out the application below and send to staff.
* Please Note: some houses are not yet equipped with water meters and will not provide usage history.
Smart Irrigation Controller Rebate
Conventional irrigation controllers can be hard to manage. In fact, they can be downright frustrating. Many homeowners would rather "set it and forget it" than manually adjust their system every season. But over 4.5 billion gallons of water are wasted each day in the United States due to irrigation inefficiencies*. There is something out there that is more intuitive and more efficient: smart controllers.
The City of West Sacramento is now offering $150 for replacing your existing conventional irrigation controller with a WaterSense(SM) labeled irrigation controller. These "smart" controllers use local weather data and landscape conditions to tailor watering schedules to actual conditions onsite. The result is less work for the homeowner and increased water efficiency. To get started, review the "Checklist" and "Terms and Conditions" and then fill out the application.
* Please Note: this rebate program is for future projects, not previously installed smart irrigation controllers.
