  • A City of Peoria water customer (not sewer or trash-only). Must have an individual account directly billed by the City of Peoria.
  • At least 500 square feet must be converted from high water use landscaping (i.e. grass) to Xeriscape. Converted area should not include more than two separate areas, unless HOA or commercial project.

  • Landscape conversions made without prior inspection must have been completed after July 1, 2013 and present copies of receipts, complete plant list, and before photos that show proof of grass. (Photos of dirt patches are unacceptable. No exceptions.) Please call for more information on the before and after inspection process.

Procedure: All potential applicants must first complete an Rebate Application Request Form.  To request an application, complete the online REBATE APPLICATION REQUEST FORM or call (623) 773-7286.

Once your name, address, phone number, and account number have been verified, an official application will be sent via email or through standard mail. Before beginning your landscape conversion, complete the application and submit it to the Environmental Resources Division. The Water Conservation staff will review your application and schedule a pre-conversion inspection to view the area you will be converting to ensure it will meet the program requirements.

NOTE: The landscape will be measured and photographed before and after the conversion. After the pre-inspection is complete, you may begin your landscape conversion. The use of impermeable plastic sheeting in your landscape is not allowed under this program.  Please make sure that your conversion project meets your HOA and/or community’s landscape ordinance requirements. When your conversion is complete, please contact the Environmental Resources Division at (623) 773-7286 to schedule post-conversion inspection of the landscape. All applicants must provide copies of your purchase receipts from the conversion and a list of the plants that were installed in the landscape at the time of the post-conversion inspection. After the post-conversion inspection is approved, the credit (based upon the chart below) will appear on your City of Peoria utility bill within 1-2 billing cycles.  You will be notified by Environmental Resources Division staff when this occurs.
