Rebates & Programs

About the SoCal Water$mart Program

 

All rebates offered by East Orange County Water District are processed through a third-party called SoCal Water$mart. This program is funded through a partnership between the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) and its 26 member agencies—cities and public water agencies—that serve about 18 million people in six counties. EOCWD is just one of those local agencies. This page will contain a brief list of Residential and Commercial rebates available to our customers, with further details and application forms linked to the SoCal Water$mart website.
