Water Savings Incentive Program

The Water Savings Incentive Program is a collaborative effort between Metropolitan, its 26 public member agencies, and large water-using customers to improve water use efficiency. The water savings potential of individualized projects helps Southern California’s businesses, agriculture, and institutions achieve their efficiency goals.  California is a recognized leader in water resource management and the support of water efficient technologies. These efforts encourage economic expansion in the region and improve water supply reliability throughout Metropolitan’s service area.


WSIP provides financial incentives for customized water efficiency projects including:


  • Installation of commercial or industrial high-efficiency equipment;
  • Industrial process improvements;
  • Agricultural and landscape water efficiency improvements; and
  • Water management services.


The program is open to all commercial, industrial, institutional, agricultural and large landscape customers with qualifying projects within Metropolitan’s 5,200 square mile service area.
