District Partners With 18 Local Water Suppliers and County
Montecito Water District is an active member of Santa Barbara County’s Regional Water Efficiency Program (RWEP). Established by Santa Barbara County Water Agency in December 1990, this partnership among local water purveyors and the County promotes the efficient use of urban and agricultural water supplies countywide.
Through the RWEP, the County Water Agency coordinates cooperative water conservation efforts among purveyors, co-funds projects and programs, acts as a clearinghouse for information on water efficiency, manages specific projects and programs, and monitors local, state and national legislation related to efficient water use.
Please check again for future opportunities; the District is currently working on a new Water Efficiency Plan and anticipates having rebates available soon - likely before the end of 2022.
