LADWP’s Upcoming Stormwater Incentive Program for Industrial Facilities Provides $1,100 and $1,500 per acre-foot Rebates for Infiltration and Onsite Use
Mayor Garcetti’s Sustainable City pLAn Local Water goals include reducing the dependency on imported water by developing the local water supply. Importing water is costly, and by having a local source, it will be locally controlled. Capturing stormwater creates a new water source for the city and can provide environmental benefits to the local community. To support the pLAn objectives, LADWP held a stakeholder meeting to communicate the program development to incentivize stormwater infiltration or capture from industrial facilities. This program is a water supply initiative, not necessarily a water quality or compliance initiative. LADWP will not be taking part in the enforcement of water quality for this program. Water quality will continue to be overseen by each regional water board as applicable.
All facilities that are regulated by the IGP and within LADWP’s service area are eligible to apply for the incentive program. The following are requirements and conditions for approval into the program:
In developing the cost structure, LADWP evaluated the following BMPs (Best Management Practices):
The final strategic plan is targeted to be completed early 2018.
