Sustainable Eden Prairie is an ongoing effort focusing on education and implementation of sustainable practices to protect the environment and natural resources our community enjoys.
Building upon the success of the 20-40-15 initiative, the City is leading by example and providing a foundation for residents and businesses to carry out sustainable practices in four areas — energy, landscape, waste and water.
City Offers Rebates for Water Conservation
Save money as you make improvements to your home and landscaping.
Rebates are available for Eden Prairie residents, businesses and others who are working towards water conservation and improved water quality in our community.
Qualifying projects include:
- Installation of water reuse systems or cisterns (750 gallons or more)
- Smart irrigation systems
- Pollinator gardens
- Construction of rain gardens
- Restoration of shoreland buffers
- Habitat improvement projects such as removing buckthorn and other invasive species
Native plants provide many benefits that traditional sod does not, such as capturing contaminants from stormwater runoff that results in cleaner water entering our local lakes, wetlands and creeks.
