Lakewood water rebate goes 'below the surface'

Lakewood water rebate goes 'below the surface'

The installation of “subsurface irrigation” systems can reduce landscape watering needs up to 25 percent! Many users find them to be convenient, save water costs over the long term and increase property values.

“Putting a specialized type of drip line about six inches underground slowly applies small volumes of water right near the root zone of plants. This avoids the wasted water runoff and evaporation typical of spray irrigation methods. And it works with grass, shrubs and groundcover areas,” said Jason Wen, Lakewood’s Director of Water Resources.

Drip line projects can be a significant undertaking.
