Tucson residents offered money to store rainwater

TUCSON, Ariz. -— Tucson Water is offering its single-family-
residential customers a rebate of up to $2,000 for harvesting and
storing rainwater.

The Arizona Daily Star reports
that the rebate program aims to help residents take advantage of that
liquid asset at a reduced cost.

Fernando Molina, a spokesman for Tucson Water, says water customers
may choose from a two-tiered plan.

Molina says customers using such a system aren’t required to meet
performance criteria for harvesting or storing water.

Participants in the rebate program must attend a free three-hour
workshop on rainwater harvesting.
