September marks the one-year milestone of Ventura Water’s Water Wise 2.0 Incentive Program.
For a year now, Ventura Water has offered $2 a square foot to residential and commercial customers who replace their lawn with low-water use landscaping. Water Wise 2.0 is one of many programs offered by Ventura Water to help customers save water. On average Californians use 30-60 percent of their water outdoors. Ventura Water customers have the chance to make a difference by incorporating climate-appropriate and native landscapes as an alternative to traditionally high water-use lawns.
Since the program’s inception in 2015, Ventura Water has supported over 445 turf replacement projects citywide. In September 2016, the program was restructured to offer customers more support and dollars per square foot. Since then, the program has grown regionally to include customers of the Casitas Municipal Water District and City of Santa Paula! Ventura Water is proud to see the great yard projects that have come out of the program.
