Many local residents have been interested in the Turf Buy-Back program offered by the local water agencies.  This program offers some cash back to residential and commercial landscape projects that include the removal of grass in an effort to conserve water.  Due to an overwhelming response to this offer, the program evolves and changes quite often.  This page contains the most current information available to us and will be updated as soon as we are notified of any changes.

Completed single-family applications are being accepted first come, first served. Last year, only applicants who applied within the first several days were accepted.


Applications for large-scale projects (HOAs, businesses, public, etc.) will be judged on scoring criteria and due no later than noon on September 30.


Applicants and homeowners not eligible for DWA funding (back yard, private front yard) should also consider apply to the state for funds. More information at SaveOurWaterRebates.com. If the state form doesn't let you apply under Desert Water Agency, select "Water agency not listed." The state is working on getting their system updated. The state will not rebate artificial turf.
