Through the Cash For Kitchens Program (C4K), West Basin provides restaurants and other food service facilities with free water-use inspection visits to assess their current water usage. These assessments include strategies on how to conserve water, free conservation devices, a water-use report, and information about current commercial device rebates offered by Metropolitan Water District.
West Basin's Landscape Irrigation Efficiency Program is a water conservation program for large landscape water users in West Basin's service area. The LIEP program provides outdoor water evaluations, which identify leaks, broken sprinklers & pipes, unnecessary runoff, sprinkler controller issues, and other water wasting problems in landscapes. The program includes sprinkler nozzle retrofits and an outdoor water-use report, complete with recommendations on more efficient outdoor watering habits for residents and businesses.
West Basin Municipal Water District partnered with the Surfrider Foundation to develop the “Ocean Friendly Landscape Program.” The Department of Water Resources awarded West Basin funding for the project. The project is comprised of 4 major components. It provides the following rebates, devices and resources to the public:
Ocean Safe Car Washes clean and recirculate their water to use 50-85% less water than the average home car wash and help prevent runoff & pollution from entering the ocean. These car washes in West Basin's service area provide discount coupons to customers. Print a coupon for a participating car wash near you, and help save water!
Catch the rain and reduce your potable water use with a free rain barrel! West Basin provides its customers with free Rain Barrels during our Rain Barrel Giveaway Events. Find out more information and register for the next Rain Barrel event by clicking here.
Did you know that you can re-use laundry water for outdoor irrigation? Greywater is used water from sinks, showers, baths and washing machines; it is not wastewater and can be safely used for watering outdoor plants. Did you also know that you can re-use rainwater from your rooftop runoff for irrigation? Attend a West Basin Rainwater/Greywater Workshop to learn about the benefits of using rainwater and greywater and how to create a simple Laundry-to-Landscape (L2L) Greywater System!
