Pipeline covers the latest news about Ventura’s water, wastewater and stormwater services, as well as insights from General Manager Shana Epstein. Upcoming issues will have details of the new financial incentives and rebate program coming this summer from Ventura Water to “wise-up” your landscape.
The Ventura City Council approved a new incentive program on March 9. The incentive plan focuses on more efficient irrigation devices and a turf removal and replacement incentive when property owners install a low-water alternative to water-thirsty grass. Some artificial turf (restrictions apply); and hardscapes like concrete patios not eligible.
- For smaller landscape areas that are converted: turf removal rebate is capped at $800.
- For larger landscape areas that are converted: turf removal rebate is capped at $1,600.
- Incentives of up to $300 are also available for other measures like buying mulch, converting to drip irrigation or installing water-efficiency devices.
