Alhambra residents will be eligible for a $150 rebate the next time they buy a washer. This comes as part of the San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District’s conservation efforts. The program offers $150 rebates for residents who purchase water-efficient appliances, which include washers and irrigation controller systems. Businesses can also receive rebates on waterless urinals.
The program is funded through a $230,000 grant from the California Department of Water Resources. The Water District serves approximately 200,000 residents who live in Alhambra, Azusa, Monterey Park, and Sierra Madre.
As California continues to battle a historic drought, Alhambra has taken measures to curb its water usage. Residents are now allowed to water their lawns only two days a week, and must choose between Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday. Watering is also prohibited between 8am and 6pm.
