As we all very well know, California is in a terrible drought. So terrible, in fact, Governor Jerry Brown instituted the first ever water-saving mandate in California’s history ordering that cities take measures to reduce their water usage by 8%- 36% or get fined a great deal of money.
While that may not be such great news, this story does have an upside.
Because the State wants everyone to participate in helping to save California’s water, they are offering major bucks to people who actually help out. To see a list of active Water Rebates that you can participate in click here.
As of June 30th, The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California recently boosted the water conservation rebate fund by $350 million which brings the total rebate fund to an overwhelming $450 million. If this isn’t screaming, “HOMEOWNERS- STOP USING WATER!” I don’t know what can.
In addition to receiving rebates for removing your lawn, you can also receive government funds for the following:
- Installing High-Efficiency Clothes Washers
- Installing High-Efficiency Low Flush Toilets
- Upgrading Sprinkler Nozzles
- Installing Soil Moisture Sensors and Irrigation Controllers
You can also save water, your lawn, and money in other ways by replacing your lawn with mulch and adding a few drought-tolerant plants to your landscaping. If you’re thinking about doing either of these things or have a landscaping question, let us over at Cutting Edge Landscape give you a hand.
