Alternate Water Source Rebates to End

The Pinellas County Utilities rebate program for alternate sources of irrigation is drawing to a close. Under the 12-year-old program, rebates were available for up to 50 percent of the installation cost (up to $300) for a shallow well, deep well, or surface water withdrawal system (such as a lake, pond, or canal) for irrigation. The program was initiated to assist customers unable to receive reclaimed water or not scheduled to receive reclaimed water within five years. Eligibility includes customers of Pinellas County Utilities and the City of Safety Harbor.

Since the Alternate Water Sources program started in 1998, approximately $512,000 has been paid out to Utilities customers, resulting in an estimated savings of 360,000 gallons of potable water per day.

Utilities will continue to process rebate applications on or before September 20, 2010.
