Working Together for Water Conservation

As a city, South Jordan has many residents and entities it works with to achieve city-wide goals. One of the most impactful of those relationships is with Larry H. Miller Real Estate and the Daybreak Community Association.

As many residents are familiar with South Jordan’s water-wise rebate programs, residents in Daybreak have often been unsure of which programs they can take advantage of and still be in compliance with Daybreak's community standards.

We’re excited to announce that in response to drought and increased demand for water-wise options from residents, Larry H. Miller Real Estate, the Daybreak Community Association and the City of South Jordan are working together to make water conservation easier for residents.

Daybreak has expanded landscape standards to allow for a “flip your strip” program for residents. If residents select from one of the pre-approved park strip templates, then the design application fee required by the Association will be waived through the end of the year. If a resident in Daybreak wants to come up with their own design, they can submit an application and will need to pay the design application fee.

The City, in collaboration with Daybreak, will offer rebates on items that comply with Daybreak’s standards, including hardscape items like curbing, concrete and stone. The City also offer rock mulch for park strip conversions.

Daybreak residents can take advantage of South Jordan City’s rebate program by submitting a copy of their approved design review application that implements one of the waterwise park strip templates provided by the Daybreak Community Association. Residents can copy the templates or substitute plants based on availability. Additionally, the Association will waive the design application fee through the end of the year for applicable park strip flip applications. Residents may access approved waterwise park strip templates and begin the approval process at www.mydaybreak.com/community.

The following are the nearly $1,500 worth of rebates and items all residents can receive through the City’s water conservation program.

  • Water-wise plant rebate – residents can receive a rebate of up to $300 for water-wise plants.
  • Free rock mulch – the City will provide free rock mulch if you flip your strip.
  • Toilet replacement rebate – receive up to $200 after you replace an old high flush toilet with a water efficient one.
  • Fixture replacement rebate – receive up to $200 to replace a high-flow shower head with a water-sense one.
  • Hardscape rebate – receive up to $500 for removing turf grass from your yard and replacing it with concrete, pavers, decks or patios.

Thank you for partnering with us, residents, to continue to lead the way in conserving water in Salt Lake County.
