Well Sub-Meter Assistance Program

The Southern Nevada Water Authority Sub-Meter Assistance Program was established through recommendations from the Advisory Committee for Groundwater Management to help well owners monitor and reduce their water use and prevent imposed fines. This program provides well owners with a one-inch water meter and a $150 rebate to help offset installation costs. This program is open to both community and domestic well users.

The Process

Step 1: Apply for a Meter

Apply online.

If you have questions about the program or need a physical copy of the application, please email us.

Please note: To be eligible for the meter and installation rebate, applicants must be current on applicable Groundwater Management Program fees.

Step 2: Receive Your Meter

Once your application is approved, your one-inch meter will be mailed to you, or you can request to pick up.

Step 3: Install Your Meter

Hire a contractor or install the meter yourself per the specifications included with the meter.

Step 4: Inspection and Rebate

Request an installation inspection and rebate from the GMP Program Team by calling 702-258-7288 or email us. Staff will schedule an inspection with the State Engineers Office. Upon inspection by the State Engineer, SNWA will process the $150 rebate.

Only meters provided through the Sub-Meter Assistance Program qualify for the rebate.

Get smart with conservation opportunities

Get water smart with the Southern Nevada Water Authority's conservation rebates and services. When funds are available through the Groundwater Management Program budget, well users can receive incentives and rebates by participating in the following programs:

Rebate Coupons
The Southern Nevada Water Authority offers several instant rebate coupons for single-family, residential property owners. Redeem the coupons for one of these qualifying, water-saving products:

Eligible well owners must be in good standing with their annual groundwater management fee and may redeem one coupon per property address for each program.

Water Audit Kits
Curious about the water efficiency of your faucets, toilets and showers? The Southern Nevada Water Authority provides a free Water Audit Kit so you can test your fixtures.

Water Smart Car Wash Coupons
If you use a Water Smart Car Wash, the water is recycled on-site or sent to a water treatment facility where it is treated and sent back to Lake Mead. Visit to find a Water Smart Car Wash near you and print coupons.

Water Smart Landscapes for Homeowners
The Water Smart Landscapes rebate helps property owners convert water-thirsty grass to a lush, yet water-efficient landscape. The Water Authority will rebate customers $3 per square foot of grass removed and replaced with water smart landscaping.

Participants must contact the Water Authority before removing any existing turf. Eligible well owners must be in good standing with their annual groundwater management fee. This program is based on availability of funds and limited to 2,500 square feet per property connected to a well.

Since 2002, when the Water Authority Board approved to extend existing conservation programs to well owners, well-using households have stepped up and overwhelmingly participated in this effort, converting more than 1.8 million square feet of turf to water-efficient landscaping.

Conservation Helpline
Call the Conservation Helpline at 702-258-SAVE (7283) to request water-saving publications and conservation program information.

A conservation staff representative is available to answer your questions Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., excluding major holidays. You can leave a voice message or report water waste outside business hours 24 hours a day.
