Pasadena Water & Power

Turf Removal Program

PWP water rebates are funded and administered by the Metropolitan Water District’s (MWD) SoCal Water$mart program.

PWP and MWD are now offering a rebate for customers who remove their turf and replace it with California-friendly and water wise landscapes. Residential customers can receive $0.60 per square foot of replaced turf, and commercial customers can receive $0.30 per square foot. The maximum rebate amount for both PWP residential and commercial customers is $500.

For more information about the rebate, please visit the MWD SoCal Water$mart site or email our Water Conservation team at: water@cityofpasadena.net.
