State Of California - California Save our Water Rebate fails to pay

Update added by user Jul 23

After complaining to the office of the

Governor of the State of California,

the Department of Water Resources approved the full

1000 square feet. Can't find contractors to do replace sod for $2000 and give up my nice water thirsty sod.

California Save our Water Rebate fails to honor condition 'existing operational turf irrigation systems' and denies application.

California's SaveOurWater program is not complying with the Governor's order.

My backyard is not bare earth. Evidence of previous lawn exists per photos submitted to program.

Here is a copy of email to SaveOurWater:

Your California SaveOurWater department 

offered a courtesy adjustment

after I explained situation yesterday and approve backyard

for the 1000 sq ft. 

I again remind the department they are in breech

to repeatedly deny my application. 

I demand honoring condition of program copied and pasted




2. Turf may be living or dead at the time of application for a reservation. Evidence of previous lawn such as existing turf, borders, remnants of turf, or existing operational turf irrigation systems may also be acceptable. Bare earth areas with no sign of turf are not eligible.
