The Santa Rosa Plain Groundwater Subbasin Well Water Use Efficiency Program provides several opportunities for groundwater users to reduce their water use. Well users in the Santa Rosa Plain may be eligible for free water efficiency programs and rebates through Prop 84 funding offering high-efficiency toilet rebates, a turf replacement rebate, a clothes washer rebate and an onsite water use consultation.
Eligibility Requirements: Private well users within Santa Rosa Plain Groundwater Subbasin are eligible to participate in these programs. Private well users include mutual water systems, shared wells (serving more than one APN), community wells (where home owners pay to operate a shared small water system), and other not for profit type water systems. Water users who receive their primary source of water from a municipal, retail or urban water supplier would not be eligible for the program.
