TUCSON (AP) - Tucson Water is offering its single-family-residential customers a rebate of up to $2,000 for harvesting and storing rainwater.
The Arizona Daily Star reports that the rebate program aims to help residents take advantage of that liquid asset at a reduced cost.
Fernando Molina, a spokesman for Tucson Water, says water customers may choose from a two-tiered plan.
Molina says customers using such a system aren't required to meet performance criteria for harvesting or storing water.
Participants in the rebate program must attend a free three-hour workshop on rainwater harvesting.
