SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diego residents have a financial incentive for installing rain barrels on their property.
Landscaping can account for more than half the water used at a typical home.
City of San Diego residential utilities customers can receive a cash-back rebate when installing a rain barrel and connecting it to the home's rain gutters.
The offer is good for up to $1 per gallon of barrel storage capacity, up to 400 gallons and $400 per property. The minimum storage capacity to receive a rebate is 45 gallons.
