Due to stormwater runoff, many pollutants typical in urban areas have been found in our local waterways. The entire city benefits when residents take steps to prevent water from leaving their property and entering the storm drains.

The City of Lincoln Watershed Management Division is offering a rebate of up to $2000 to Lincoln property owners for approved projects. The program reimburses applicants for 50 percent of qualifying expenses related to the projects outlined below. These projects are intended to improve water quality, reduce runoff, and facilitate infiltration. Participants may do the work themselves or hire a professional.
