Water Saving Programs
Turf Removal Program

The Metropolitan Water District’s Turf Removal Program is back! You may be eligible to receive a rebate for removing turf on your property. The goal of this program is to reduce your outdoor water consumption and potential runoff that may come from your irrigation system.

Residential customers can have a landscape design created for them, with their input, through the Chino Basin Water Conservation District. A landscape design is required to participate, and residents can choose to enroll in the Chino Basin Water Conservation District’s Landscape Design Assistance Program to obtain assistance with a landscape design.  

Residents and businesses who are interested in transforming their landscapes can visit SoCal WaterSmart to find out more! The City of Chino Hills strongly encourages residents and businesses who are interested to read through all guidelines and requirements.
