Nevada County residents, as well as those around the state, can now apply for a state rebate to replace lawns for more water-efficient landscapes. Kent Frame, with the Department of Water Resources, says homeowners can go to their web site, Save Our Water Rebates dot-com….
Frame says the program, which just began last Wednesday, will rebate up to two dollars per square foot for up to 2-thousand dollars. Reservations are on a first-come, first-serve basis. 24-million dollars in funding has been provided from voter-approved Proposition One and Frame expects the money to run out rather quickly, as brown lawns become more widespread…
Frame says the application and approval process will take up to two weeks and the lawn removal and replacement project should be completed within 120 days after that.
