A short article in yesterday's Los Angeles Times reported that the DWP will pay $1 per square foot to single-family residential customers who replace their green lawns with pre-approved, drought-tolerant plants. The DWP website indicates that consumers can receive rebates for installing synthetic turf or rotating sprinkler heads. Additionally, there are programs for various water-efficient or electricity-saving appliances. The details of these programs are not well explained on the website; to get information on how to participate, call the DWP at 888-376-3314.
