Irrigation Controller for Smart Watering

Residential utility customers with an in-ground irrigation system connected to the city’s water system are eligible for a rebate by purchasing and installing a WaterSense® approved smart irrigation controller. The Metropolitan Council has awarded grant funds to the city to provide rebates of up to $300 per customer on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds are exhausted. Smart irrigation controllers use local weather forecasts to determine recent and expected rainfall and automate irrigation to be most effective. New or commercial construction and homeowner’s associations are ineligible.
