This task will provide incentive rebates to customers for turf removal and installation of drought tolerant landscaping and associated irrigation to augment existing turf removal programs available within the Santa Ana River Watershed and the Rancho California Water District, EMWD and WMWD service areas within the Upper Santa Margarita Watershed. This turf removal program will target “highly visible” publicly owned, institutional, and homeowner’s association (HOA) areas for turf replacement. Incentive rebates are anticipated to be $1 per square foot (SF) from the grant and $2 per SF from the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) rebate program referred to as SoCal Water$mart or similar $2/SF rebate local program.
