CVWD partners with Rancho Mirage to offer larger turf rebate

Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) has partnered with the City of Rancho Mirage (City) to offer a combined rebate of $6 per square-foot to CVWD customers within the City of Rancho Mirage who convert their turf to water-efficient landscaping.

For projects completed after July 1, the program provides a $3 rebate from the City that will be combined with CVWD’s $3 incentive for projects up to 10,000 square-feet for residential customers and 25,000 square-feet for HOAs and commercial customers. CVWD will handle the entire application process and will pay the rebates in full after approved projects are completed. Projects must be pre-approved before any grass is removed.

The partnership aims to incentivize residents and businesses to participate by cost-sharing the expenses. CVWD’s research shows the cost per square foot for a turf conversion to water-efficient landscaping ranges between $4 and $8 depending on the project size, design and plant palette.

In addition to the $6 rebate, HOAs or commercial projects that are required by the City to have plans signed by a landscape architect may be eligible for an additional rebate from the City to reimburse participants for the cost of the service, up to $6,000.
