New Turf Rebate Now Accepting Applications
As of July 9, 2018, Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD) customers can apply for the new Landscape Transformation Program through the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD). This program mirrors previous turf replacement rebate programs, but has additional components to enhance the sustainability and water use reduction of the program. The program combines elements of grass removal, irrigation modification and onsite water retention.
The Landscape Transformation Program has a two-part application process. To apply, applicants must be pre-approved and will have180 days to complete their project. CVWD customers will receive $2.00 per square foot up to a maximum of 1,500 square feet of turf removed. The rebate is managed by MWD through their rebates website SoCalWaterSmart.com.
“CVWD invites our customers to participate in MWD’s turf removal rebate program,” says CVWD Board President, James V. Curatalo Jr. “Our community has done a great job conserving water outdoors through shifting to drought tolerant landscaping. This new rebate program will continue to encourage customers to make water conservation a way of life.”
Customers interested in participating in this rebate program are encouraged to review the requirements at SoCalWaterSmart.com prior to moving forward with any projects. For more information about CVWD and other programs to help you save water outdoors, visit CVWDwater.com or call 855-654-CVWD.
