SAN DIEGO (KGTV)- With the rainy season ahead, the City of San Diego is offering ways for residents to save money on their water bills by removing lawns and installing rain barrels. 

The City is offering $1.25 per square foot for lawns that are converted to turf that can capture rainfall for reuse. Homeowners that convert their lawn into drought resistant landscape can apply for financial rebates.

Customers may receive $1 per gallon of barrel storage capacity for residential rainwater collecting up to 400 gallons or $400 per property. Rain barrels are a great way to conserve water and reuse for irrigation purposes as well as preventing pollution, according to city officials. 

Applications are available for Rainwater Harvest, to apply click here
