Thank you for your interest in water conservation. Approval of applications will be on a first-come-first serve basis and subject to funding availability. Submittal of a reservation request or application does not guarantee approval or payment.
The SoCal WaterSmart Turf Removal Program waitlist was closed effective November 1st, 2015. No new applications were or will be accepted after that date. Funding is exhausted in Metropolitan's service area. Customers who have previously been added to the waitlist will be informed on a case by case basis when or if funding becomes available. Metropolitan will continue to monitor and update this website if funding becomes available in 2016.
*Turf removal rebates are still available in some areas. Please visit the Turf removal Program Overview for a list of agencies.
