WaterSmart Contractor Incentive Program

The WaterSmart Contractor Incentive Program (WSCIP) is a large landscape and technology-focused program, which targets qualified landscape contractors and self-managed sites. The San Diego County Water Authority’s (SDCWA) mission is to improve water-use efficiency in large landscapes by retrofitting irrigation devices.

What is WSCIP?

WSCIP offers four incentivized water-efficient devices that are among the irrigation industry’s best management practices.

 

Enrollment is a paperless process. To participate, create an account to enroll and verify your qualifications. This pilot program is available for a limited time and on a first-come-first-served basis.
