LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti urged local businesses to take advantage of rebates the city gives for reducing wastewater output after touring the Anheuser-Busch plant in Van Nuys this week, according to an article from the Los Angeles Daily News.
Although Los Angeles charges commercial businesses fees based on their projected wastewater output, if the company discharges less than the anticipated amount, they can receive a rebate, noted the article.
Anheuser-Busch received a $2.3 million rebate from the city for their wastewater output reduction, according to the article.
