Customers of Western Municipal Water District (Western) are now eligible to participate in a rebate program that encourages sustainable landscape transformation.
Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the regional wholesale water provider to Western, is providing $1 per square foot for the turf removal incentive. Western is adding an additional $1 per square foot for a total of $2 per square foot. This program will be offered until funding is exhausted.
“Western is excited to see the return of a turf replacement program. In our previous program, our customers converted nearly 800,000 square feet of landscape,” said Water Resources Specialist Rob Whipple, who manages the turf program for Western. “We see this as a great way to drought-proof our region.”
A program application and more information are available at SoCalWaterSmart.com.
Western Municipal Water District provides water supply, wastewater disposal and water resource management to the public in a safe, reliable, environmentally sensitive and financially responsible manner.
