The Municipal Water District of Orange County, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, and your local water agency bring you the Turf Removal Program. The goals of this program are to increase water use efficiency within Orange County and reduce runoff leaving the properties, which eventually enters the ocean.
Through this Program, residential and commercial customers of participating retail water providers are eligible to receive incentives for removing turfgrass from their properties (for qualifying projects).
All approved applicants must complete their project within 60 days from the date of their Letter to Proceed.
Your participation in this Program is voluntary and is encouraged by your local water agency. Maximum rebate paid will not exceed the overall project costs, as described in the program application.
The Turf Removal Program is available for Orange County residential and commercial customers, with the exception of customers served by the following retail water agencies:
- Emerald Bay Service District
- City of Garden Grove
- Golden State Water Company
- City of La Palma
- City of San Juan Capistrano
- City of Anaheim
