Tucson Water offers workshops for rebate participants | Environment
Tucson Water is holding two free workshops on Rainwater Harvesting and on Gray Water on Saturday, February 16, at the University of Arizona, Pima County Cooperative Extension, (4210 N. Campbell Avenue.)
Along with a new class schedule, the new year also brings changes to Tucson’s gray water program. The rebate amount for installing a permanent single family residential gray water system recently increased to 50 percent of the cost up to $1,000 (in the past the rebate was only $200). This rebate applies to systems installed after January 1, 2013.
The first workshop on gray water will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and will teach the design, operation and maintenance of a gray water system.
The second workshop on rainwater harvesting will be held from 9 a.m. to noon and focuses on designing a passive or active rainwater system for a residential landscape.
Tucson Water is also offering a rebate of half the cost, up to $2,000, for a rainwater system. Participation in the rainwater harvesting workshops and rebate continues to be strong.
Attendance at these workshops is mandatory for those who want to qualify for the rainwater harvesting and the gray water rebates.
Seating for both classes is limited, so please call (520) 626-5161 to register.
