No Cost Programs

The District has no cost programs to help customers use their existing sprinkler system efficiently. Customers can upgrade their sprinkler system with high efficiency devices that will use water more efficiently. Interested in one of the programs listed below? Submit an online request or call us at 909-267-2130. 

Sprinkler Nozzle Program

Nozzles are the top part of the sprinkler where the water is released. These can wear out or get clogged over time and need to be replaced. This program will upgrade your worn out, water wasting sprinkler nozzles and replace them with water efficient nozzles. Both residential and business customers are eligible for this program, which includes:

  • Evaluation of sprinkler system
  • High efficiency nozzle upgrades
  • Minor repairs to sprinklers (raising sprinkler bodies or replacing broken sprinklers)
  • Only systems with pop-up style sprinklers are eligible, not rotor sprinklersScreen Shot 2020-03-31 at 13.45.02

Smart Timer Program

Did you know over-watering isn’t only bad for your water bill, but also for plant health? New "smart" timers can help by using local weather conditions and plant type to water the right amount. This program provides the installation of a "smart" timer by an irrigation professional.
