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:

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.  

Getting Started

Funding for this program is limited and submitting an application does not guarantee the customer will receive payment.  Incentives will be reserved for projects on a first-come, first-served basis until funding is exhausted.

Note: Program policy requires that both Metropolitan and applicants sign a funding agreement prior to project implementation. Please submit applications well in advance of anticipated project starts to ensure adequate time for project review, data acquisition, and development of contract documents.
