The Public Agency Landscape program is temporarily suspended pending internal review – please check back for updates.

To encourage agencies that have not already installed water-efficient landscape equipment to do so, SoCal Water$mart has unveiled the Public Agency Landscape (PAL) program, offering enhanced incentives paid up-front for public agencies to install water-efficient landscape devices at their facilities and on their grounds.

Three Easy Steps

  1. Obtain a quote for your project including a list of all items (be sure to list makes, models, and quantities).
  2. Submit your incentive application to SoCal Water$mart via the link below, and be sure to choose “Public Agency Landscape” for the Facility Type in the application. Upon approval, you will receive a check from SoCal Water$mart to purchase your devices.
  3. Purchase and install your devices, and send copies of the final invoices to SoCal Water$mart.
