Recycled Water On-site Retrofit Program

Incentives of up to $195 per acre-foot for 10 years of estimated water use.

Metropolitan’s On-site Retrofit Program provides financial incentives directly to public or private properties for costs associated with recycled water conversion from imported water irrigation or industrial systems. The program is open to public or private properties with at least 1 acre-foot per year of imported water use or a minimum of 15,000 square-feet of irrigated area, and with access to recycled water within Metropolitan’s service area.

Incentives can help cover the costs of project design, permitting, construction costs associated with the retrofit, connection fees and required recycled water signage.

The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is a consortium of 26 cities and water districts that provides drinking water to nearly 19 million people in parts of Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties.
