Rainwater harvesting is the practice of collecting rainwater from rooftops and storing it for later use. This practice can reduce potable water use while also helping to limit erosion and polluted runoff that harm our creeks. Just one inch of rain on a 1,000 square-foot roof produces 600 gallons of runoff. Rainwater harvesting systems and roof gutters should be cleaned seasonally.
Marin Water offers up to 50 cents per gallon of storage, not to exceed actual cost. Total rebates for rain barrels and cisterns may not exceed $1,000 per site.
Remember that harvested rainwater, whether from a rain barrel or a cistern, should not be used for drinking or for human consumption. It should be used for irrigation purposes only.
You can combine rebates from Pacific Gas and Electric and the Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership to cover the full cost of the equipment when you purchase and replace existing qualifying commercial kitchen equipment like dishwashers, steam cookers, pre-rinse spray valves and lavatory faucets.
