Arroyo Grande, Pismo Beach join forces on water conservation

The cities of Arroyo Grande and Pismo Beach have partnered to promote water conservation awareness with their new Think H2O campaign that offers rebate programs and water-saving tips for residents.

Through the new program, both cities offer "Cash for Grass" lawn-removal rebates and water-efficient washing machine, smart irrigation controller and StormRewards rebates. Pismo Beach will also offer a commercial urinal rebate program and high-efficiency toilet rebate program.

The website also provides a pledge for people to take to see how many gallons of water they can save by changing a few daily habits.
