Thanks to the MWD folks for approving $350mm more in rebate funding.

Green Project Marketing and its partners are working hard to assist consumers and businesses with turf removal, toilet retrofits to reduce water usage.

It's first come first serve out here in the Wild, Wild West - so any parties interested should move NOW and visit the SoCalWater$mart pages - Click HERE to reach this page. Then go to residential or commercial to fill out application, provide images, etc. to ensure square footage or number of toilets have been reserved. AmeriTurf ProGreen case study res yard a

For the turf removal, the MWD board was correct to reduce commercial rebates as they were taking too much of the pie - $1/square foot up to $25,000 annual maximum.

For residences, now $2.00 sq. ft, up to $6,000 max.  LADWP is offering the $1.75/sq. ft incentive bringing a 1,500 sq. ft. project to $5,625 rebate.

Take advantage of this program today as funding reserves will fill up fast.

MWD claims in the article, if the agency were to continue funding the program at $450 million after this year, it would result in a "very significant" rate increase — or about 7% for every $100 million in funding.

Well, kudos to Gov. Brown for taking some drastic action on CA's water issues.

Californians do not know for sure what the latest drought cycle is, but we do know that it is time to take action to the next level.  Cities throughout the state have not been idle. There are amazing statistics on water usage reductions even though the population has increased steadily.

Here are some of the key actions taken by Sacramento:

Other elements of Brown's order would:

--Require golf courses, cemeteries and other large landscaped spaces to reduce water consumption.

--Replace 50 million square feet of lawn statewide with drought-tolerant landscaping as part of a partnership with local governments.

--Create a statewide rebate program to replace old appliances with more water- and energy-efficient ones.

--Require new homes to have water-efficient drip irrigation if developers want to use potable water for landscaping.

--Ban the watering of ornamental grass on public street medians.

--Call on water agencies to implement new pricing models that discourage excessive water use.

--Require agricultural to report more water usage information to the state so that regulators can better find waste and improper activities.

-Create a mechanism to enforce requirements that water districts report usage numbers to the state.
