Rainwater Catchment Rebate – we qualify!

2018 September 21

Our neighbor Carolyn sent me this:
The Copperopolis area has the opportunity to receive a rebate for installed rainwater catchment systems through the Tuolumne County Resource Conservation District.

One inch of rain on 1,000 square feet of roof can generate up to 600 gallons of water. Encouraging responsible rainwater collection is conducive to Tuolumne County RCDs core goal of enabling water savings and promoting watershed health throughout the region.

Systems with a capacity greater than 165 gallons will be rebated $0.30 per gallon. Systems with a capacity of 165 gallons or less, using rain barrels, will be rebated $1.00 per gallon. Rebates will be calculated based on system storage capacity according to submitted receipts.

Homeowners within the T-Stan IRWMA boundary (all of Tuolumne County, and up to Hwy 4 in Calaveras County), who install working rainwater catchment systems may be reimbursed for a portion of their costs at a rate of 30 cents per gallon of their tank capacity. Engineering of the system is free. They will come out, look at your site and figure out all materials needed.
If you are interested in hearing a short presentation at my house, Saturday, September 29 at 11:00am, please IM me or send an email to
