DWR Announces $30 Million in New Rebates to Replace "Turf and Toilets"

The California Department of Water Resources just launched two new statewide rebates to help Californians replace inefficient toilets and remove thirsty turf. The "Turf and Toilets" program, funded by Proposition 1, will pay out a total of $30 million in rebates – $24 million for turf and $6 million for toilet replacements. The turf program will offer rebates of up to $2 per square foot of turf, up to $2,000 per household. The program will target $12 million towards assisting residents in disadvantaged communities. The toilet program will offer a $100 customer rebate per household for replacing an old toilet with a high-efficiency model. Info for toilet rebate (PDF)

According to DWR, the programs will help the state meet Gov. Jerry Brown's conservation mandate by replacing more than 10 million square-feet of lawn and more than 60,000 inefficient toilets. Residents are encouraged to visit the California Department of Water Resources Website for information and apply for a rebate.
