Discounts, resources available to help reduce water use • The Malibu Times

The city has partnered with LACWD and the West Basin Municipal Water District to help Malibu residents and businesses save water and money through the Malibu Smart Water Conservation Program, Turf Replacement. Outdoor water consumption accounts for 50% or more of total household water consumption during the warmer months.

One of the most effective ways to permanently reduce water usage in the home is to replace water-thirsty lawns with drought-tolerant landscapes. Residents can claim a $5 per square foot grass removal rebate (up to 5,000 square feet or $25,000 total). Lawn replacement discounts are also available for commercial and multi-family customers.
