Water Savings Incentive Program for Avocado Growers

Posted: April 21, 2016

On Tuesday May 17, 2016, the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) will host a seminar in Fallbrook designed to help California avocado growers in MWD’s service area save water and money. The seminar will be held from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. at the Grand Traditions Estate and Gardens, 220 Grand Tradition Way, Fallbrook, CA 92028.

The seminar will cover:

  • Potential ways to reduce water use and costs in the avocado grove
  • MWD’s new cash incentive program that helps growers in MWD’s service area improve water use efficiency through the use of soil moisture sensors and other technologies

The California Avocado Commission has been working closely with MWD to get soil moisture sensors and other water saving and use efficiency technologies included in their Water Savings Incentive Program (WSIP) for avocado growers. These incentives are now available to growers in MWD’s service area and this meeting will provide growers with the information they need to get started in the program.

Representatives from a number of different companies with WSIP qualifying technologies will also be on hand to provide growers with information about their various products.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about water saving technology and the opportunity to enroll in MWD’s rebate incentive program.
