MOJAVE WATER AGENCY OFFERING CASH FOR GRASS

As the California Drought continues, the Mojave Water Agencies’ “Cash for Grass” program is curbing water use. Reporter Taylor Thacker tells you how to get paid for getting rid of the lawn……
High Desert residents continue to embrace water conservation as a way of life. The Mojave Water Agency and the Alliance for Water Awareness and Conservation have announced that a total of 6.5 million square-feet of turf has been removed since 2008 thanks to the Cash for Grass Program. This has resulted in a cumulative savings of 4,855 acre-feet of water that has helped drought-proof the High Desert region. The program currently offers 50 cents per square foot for turf removed. Residents interested in participating in the Cash for Grass program or desire more information on water conservation should contact their local water provider or call the Mojave Water Agency at (760) 946-7000.

    So they offer cash rewards to water hogs. This must be Yucca Valley. Do they reward those of us who have been conserving all along. Nope, they just cut our already frugal allotment while the hogs are reduced less than we are because they used more to start with. Yup, this community is run by Republicans who by and large favor lawns…
