REBATES FOR WATER SAVING FIXTURES and XEROSCAPING
- Low Flow Fixture Rebates: A rebate of 50% on qualified low-flow fixtures that are installed (i.e. irrigation controllers, irrigation high efficency/rotary nozzles). Details of approved models can be found through the Denver Water website at www.denverwater.org under Commercial Rebates
- Landscaping and Xeroscape Incentives (Cash for Grass): Cash Incentives for the Turf Replacement To encourage more outdoor water conservation, the Inverness Water and Sanitation District has a “Cash 4 Grass” incentive for commercial properties that offers a rebate of $1 per square foot of grass that is removed and replaced with an Inverness Planning and Architectural Control Committee approved low water use landscape (such as shrubbery with drip irrigation). All commercial property owners within the District’s service area that are interested in the “Cash 4 Grass” program must pre-apply for a rebate and receive the District’s approval before starting the grass replacement project. The District will rebate up to 10,000 square feet of grass replacement, for a maximum of $10,000 being paid in any one year for each property. Contact the District for further information and requirements.
- Rebate Rules and Process: Rebate programs are offered on a first come first serve basis. The maximum rebate to any one property is $10,000 in any year. Please contact us in advance of any potential rebated purchases or landscape modifications to ensure a rebate will apply.
DROUGHT RESTRICTIONS & ALTERNATING IRRIGATION SCHEDULE
Currently drought restrictions are recommended practices at this time. The District may impose drought restrictions from time to time if necessary to preserve adequate supplies for indoor use in the District. In addition, the District may be required by the state, water authorities, and its supply contracts to initiate restrictions during regional drought conditions.
- Irrigation Using Potable Water: The District recommends that all potable water irrigation customers water after 6:00 pm in the evening and before 9:00 am in the morning. Odd addresses should irrigate on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, and even addresses should irrigate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. Customers are encouraged not to wash down paved surfaces except for health and safety purposes. Hand watering is permitted at any time.
- Irrigation Using Non-potable Water: Irrigation customers are only allowed to irrigate after 6:00 pm and before 8:00 am. Drip-irrigation and irrigation systems for planter beds are permitted daily. Watering by sprinkler systems is limited to 4 days a week.
- Washing Paved Surfaces: Paved surfaces cannot be washed down without a CDPHE Regulation 84 permit.
- Hand watering: is permitted at anytime.
