Water Utility Authority Offering Xeriscape Rebates

Image

Just in time for spring, the Water Authority is announcing that its xeriscape rebates are now $2.00 per square foot of turf removed for both residential and commercial customers. Desert-friendly landscapes save water, require less maintenance, and are more appropriate for our arid climate, so the time to get off the lawn is now! Plans must be pre-approved, and certain conditions apply. Rebate requirements can be found at: https://www.abcwua.org/conservation-rebates-residential-commercial-xeriscape-rebates/
