Pasadena Water & Power

Turf Removal Program

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

Due to the immense popularity of the turf removal rebate, MWD’s funds for this program have been exhausted and the turf removal incentive is no longer available.

A waitlist is available for customers who wish to standby should funds become available in the fall (first-come, first-serve basis). To join the waitlist, please submit a complete application through SoCal Water$mart. Please note that in order to be considered for a rebate, you must not start your project until after you receive an email confirming you have been selected. Submittal of an application for the waitlist does not guarantee selection, approval, or payment.
