The CCWD Lawn to Garden Rebate Program provides rebates to qualified customers to replace their existing water-thirsty front lawns with water-wise landscaping. The rebate is $1 per square foot with a maximum of $1,000 per single family residence and up to $20,000 for commercial, homeowner associations, industrial and institutional properties. The program is not retroactive.
