The city of Folsom is giving out cash to encourage residents to conserve. A new rebate program kicked off Wednesday -- financial incentives to get rid of lawns or trade up to more energy efficient appliances.
"We had a completely overwhelming response to this," Folsom Water Conservation Coordinator Don Smith said and added his office was inundated with calls all day.
"People in Folsom are looking for ways to save water and they are really excited about getting this opportunity for a little financial support to do that," he said.
Lou Nall and her husband are making improvements to their yard. They removed a tree and the shrubs that lined their home.
"I want the drip system, because it will save on the water, I'm sure," Nall explained.
