Rebates On Water-Saving Devices For Mariposa Co. Residents

MARIPOSA COUNTY  – The Mariposa County Resource Conservation District (MCRCD) has launched a new rebate program that offers cash rebates for the purchase and installation of specific water-efficient products.

Funded by a Department of Water Resources grant to the Lake Don Pedro Community Services District, these rebates are administered by the MCRCD and are open to customers of LDPCSD in Mariposa and Tuolumne counties, as well as all residents in Mariposa County whether they are a water company customer or rely on their own water well.

“We’re hoping that the timing of this new rebate will assist residents whose homes were damaged in the Detwiler Fire,” said David Mecchi, president of the MCRCD board of directors. “If flooring needs to be replaced, or other repairs made, it would be a good opportunity to install new, water-efficient toilets and appliances. Residents will save both water and money.”

In order to participate, a resident must purchase products on the approved lists, fill out an application, and mail it in to the MCRCD with the original receipt.

And, because the state’s drought declaration occurred in January 2014, and many people purchased water-efficient products during the drought years, the MCRCD is able to make the grant program retroactive for any approved products purchased after Feb. 1, 2014, if an original receipt is provided.

The rebates cover the following items:

  • Smart sprinkler controller – $200
  • High-efficiency clothes washer – $200
  • High-efficiency toilet – $200
  • High-efficiency dishwasher – $200
  • Rain barrel (limit 4) – $50
  • Cistern – $250
  • Native Plants (limit 10) – $10

Program funding is limited and applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis while funds are available. Please call the MCRCD message line at (209)742-2552 to reserve your rebate.

  • Leave your name, address, phone number and email address, and how many product rebate applications you intend to submit.
  • Purchase your product or find your original receipt if you have already purchased and installed an eligible item, then fill out the application form on our website or in the brochure.
  • Attach the original, dated receipt and mail it to the Mariposa County Resource Conservation District to process.

Once approved, you will receive your rebate check in the mail within four to six weeks. Applicants who would like their original receipts returned may include a stamped, self-addressed envelope and receipts will be mailed back once the program has ended.

Look for more information about the rebates and lists of eligible products on the Mariposa County RCD website at or call the message line at 209-742-2552 to reserve your rebate.
