Rain Barrel Rebate
Did you know you can receive up to a $100 rebate when you purchase and install a rain barrel to collect rainwater?
The City of San Mateo has partnered with BAWSCA to offer an incentive for residents to purchase a water saving rain barrel.
In June 2017, the City Council joined the Climate Mayors Network and adopted a Resolution to uphold the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. For more information about all of the City’s sustainability initiatives, please explore our site.
