Rebates are available to Eden Prairie homeowners who make improvements that contribute to water conservation and improve water quality.
Landscaping for water quality
Installing a native plant landscape supports water conservation and improves water quality.
Native plants are adapted to local environmental conditions. They require less irrigation and fertilizer, capture pollutants, mitigate erosion and provide wildlife habitat.
All projects must be approved prior to installation.
Plans approved by the city could qualify for a rebate of 80% of the pretax cost of the project up to $2,000.
See details on the city’s website.
Smart irrigation and water reuse systems
Smart irrigation controllers conserve water by tailoring watering schedules to your yard and automatically monitoring weather conditions, soil moisture levels, and evaporation.
Irrigation system upgrades, new installations and stormwater reuse systems require approval before installation.
Smart irrigation controller rebates are 100% of pretax cost, up to $175; limit one per household. Spray sprinkler body rebates are 100% of pretax cost, up to $100 per household.
Funds are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Learn more about this program on the city’s website.
