Eagan is continuing the Smart Irrigation Program to help the City reduce annual water use and residents to save money on their irrigation systems.

How it Works

  • Have an irrigation system evaluation performed, receive a comprehensive report about your system, have your old controller professionally replaced with a new “Smart” weather-based controller, and be trained on your new Smart system.
  • For a list of certified landscape irrigation auditors (CLIA), visit the EPA’s WaterSense website. Be sure to filter on the lefthand panel for Minnesota under "State/Province" and Irrigation System Audit under "Certification". See image below:
  • State selection menu from the EPA's WaterSense website


Each Eagan property is eligible for a one-time, fixed rate discount of up to $250 ($170 for the irrigation audit and $80 for the irrigation controller). A refund is issued directly to the irrigation company from the City of Eagan. Note: residents do not need to submit a rebate application to the City; all refunds will be issued by the irrigation company directly.

Before beginning any irrigation system audit or updates, please contact the City of Eagan Utilities Division at (651) 675-5200 to ensure your selected contractor is CLIA certified and is participating in the Eagan Smart Irrigation Program. Only audits completed by CLIA certified technicians qualify for this program.
