St. Pete's Rainwater Rebate Program

The City of St. Petersburg has launched the Rainwater Rebate Program through which St. Petersburg utility customers can earn rebates by using rainwater catchment devices that conserve potable (drinking) water and help reduce the amount of stormwater runoff entering local waterways.
 
Available Rebates:
  • Rain Barrel: $50 rebate for each barrel. Maximum 2 per year/6 per property
  • Rain Tote: $100 rebate for each tote. Maximum 1 per year/2 per property
  • Rain Garden: $100 rebate for each garden. Maximum 1 per year/2 per property
The program not only supports the City’s sustainability initiatives, but also aims to educate residents on their impact on local waterways and how rainwater catchment devices can make a difference. 
 
Residents interested in taking advantage of the Rainwater Rebate Program must attend a Rainwater Guardian Workshop. Residents can expect to learn how to setup, use and maintain rain barrels, rain totes and rain gardens. Workshops are free and open to the public and attendance includes a free rain barrel for St. Petersburg utility customers. Workshop dates can be found at stpete.org/WaterPrograms.
 
Rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis until funding is exhausted. Limitations apply. With proper installation, maintenance and use, rainwater collection devices should function properly. The City of St. Petersburg assumes no liability for the installation, maintenance, property damage or injury that may be associated with the use of rainwater catchment devices. Collected rainwater should not be used as a drinking water source.
 
More information and eligibility requirements can be found at stpete.org/WaterPrograms. Questions can be directed to the Water Conservation Office at RainwaterRebates@stpete.org or 727-892-5688.
