County Rebate Program for Property Owners

County Rebate Program for Property Owners

Property owners interested in going green and helping the Anacostia River should be aware of a new program from PG DER, Rain Check. The program provides rebates for installing water friendly practices like rain barrels at your property. These newly installed practices can then be used to apply for a credit against the county's Clean Water Act Fee, which has been levied to improve water quality in our streams and the Anacostia River.

There will be a workshop nearby in Bladensburg on October 22, 2013, 6:30-8:30pm at the Bladensburg Community Center, 4500 57th Ave, Bladensburg, MD.
Prince George’s County is committed to improving the quality of life for its communities by promoting green solutions to stormwater runoff. Stormwater runoff occurs when rain (or snowmelt) flows over the land picking up pollutants such as oil, grease, sediment, and nutrients which make their way into local streams and rivers. The Rain Check Rebate Program allows property owners to receive rebates for installing Rain Check approved stormwater management practices. Homeowners, businesses, and nonprofit entities (including housing cooperatives and churches) can recoup some of the costs of installing practices covered by the program.
