Eastern Municipal Water District Offering Free Residential Drip Irrigation Kits
Perris, CA — Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) is offering free residential drip kits for qualifying customers to help convert landscape irrigation areas from spray to drip irrigation.
The program is funded in part through a nearly $70,000 grant from the United States Bureau of Reclamation’s (USBR) WaterSmart program.
Each drip kit is valued at approximately $245 and includes pressure regulators, drip tubing, connectors and emitters. The kit provides enough material to convert between 250-400 square feet of planter beds to highly-efficient drip irrigation, which can save up to 60 percent of water per station when compared to traditional spray irrigation.
Customers will also receive a DVD providing installation instructions and maintenance tips.
Customers who wish to participate may contact EMWD to request a voucher for the kits, which may be redeemed at Imperial Irrigation Supply in Menifee. There is a limit of two kits per customer and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
