Drought Conditions and Rebates Encourage Installation of Artificial Turf in California

Drought Conditions and Rebates Encourage Installation of Artificial Turf in California

Jan 22 2014

Governor Jerry Brown declared that California is in a drought state of emergency last Friday, stating that “everyone must do their part” to prepare for the consequences of an extended drought. Citing a chart that indicates California faces “water shortfalls in the driest year in recorded state history,” Governor Brown declared this an emergency and called for all Californians to conserve water in every way possible.” ( Governor Brown is urging everyone to reduce their water consumption by 20 percent immediately. 

One way to do your part is to install artificial turf in your yard. Outdoor landscaping accounts for about 60 - 70 percent of water use in Southern California, a significant drain on the water supply. While there are other ways to impact the severe drought conditions, artificial turf is an important option to consider. Artificial turf is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional grass lawns that substantially reduces the need for watering, thereby helping to conserve water in the local water district. 

Artificial Turf Rebates There are artificial turf rebate programs to help Californians remove and install artificial turf in most parts of California. Since different cities have different qualifications and programs, the easiest way to learn about possible rebates in your area is to check with your local water district
