Lawn Conversions

EBMUD's lawn and irrigation upgrade rebates are designed with a "new norm" for the California landscape in mind. Residential and commercial customers choose from a menu of rebates that help create functional and ornamental outdoor spaces and get a great return on investment. Convert high-water-use lawns to sustainable landscaping and change sprinklers to drip irrigation. Upgrade older low-efficiency sprinklers nozzles and replace traditional irrigation controllers with self-adjusting models. Install pressure regulators and submeters to improve irrigation system performance and management.
