Turf Removal Program

In partnership with the Municipal Water District of Orange County and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, City water customers are eligible to receive an incentive of $1 per square foot of existing irrigated turf removed and replaced with artificial/synthetic turf and or California-native, drought tolerant vegetation. This simple step can lower your water bills, reduce water usage, and eliminate water runoff from your property.

Residents, HOAs, and small businesses may qualify for this program. To determine whether your turf project meets specific program requirements, please visit the Orange Water Smart page. Customers are encouraged to apply now, as funding is limited. Applications will be processed in the order received until funding is depleted.
