Tampa, FL June 19, 2012 - A limited number of rebates for conversion of conventional irrigation zones to micro-irrigation remain available for qualified Tampa water utility customers. Requests for program participation are being accepted through July 13.
The Tampa Water Department is offering up to $250 for single-family residential account holders and up to $1,000 to multi-family and commercial customers currently using city water for irrigation at locations where high-volume irrigation is converted to low-volume technology.
In addition to offering rebates for conversions to micro-irrigation, the Water Department also is offering commercial locations up to $1,000 per location to assist with the installation of soil moisture sensors or evapo-transpiration technology to increase the efficiency of large-scale irrigation system operation.
Rebates are available only for City of Tampa Water Department customers with operational in-ground irrigation systems using City-provided potable water. Pre-registration, confirmation of program enrollment and a site visit is required prior to beginning work on the irrigation system.
Participation criteria, micro-irrigation rebate program guidelines and application information are available on-line at www.tampagov.net/savewater or by calling (813) 274-8121.
