The Water Authority’s WaterSmart Turf Replacement Program offers an incentive of $1.50 per square foot to eligible customers who replace existing water-intensive turf grass with water-efficient landscaping. Customers may receive up to $3,000 for residential properties and up to $9,000 for commercial properties. This program is funded by grants from the California Department of Water Resources and the federal Bureau of Reclamation. Incentives will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until the grant funds are gone. Pre-existing turf removal/replacement projects are not eligible.
For full program requirements, landscape criteria and other details, visit WaterSmart Turf Replacement Program or call 1-866-685-2322.
