Irrigation Evaluation Cost Share Rebate
The District is offering water users a rebate for mobile lab services. Mobile lab services perform irrigation system evaluations by measuring water rate application, system distribution uniformity and by providing efficiency improvement recommendations.
The amount of rebate per field evaluation is limited to 25% of the invoice or $500, whichever is less. Funds are limited and availability is on a first come first serve basis. If you have any questions, please call Israel Sanchez at 559-241-6237.
