In an effort to save water and reduce maintenance, four neighborhoods in Indio are scheduled to undergo turf conversion projects over the next six months. Replacing grass with drought-tolerant landscaping also cuts water and maintenance costs, and prolongs the life of adjacent sidewalks and curbs. In addition, it reduces the amount of contamination by fertilizers and other chemicals into the groundwater, forwarding the City’s sustainability efforts.
Project scopes and estimated work dates are as follows:
Five additional neighborhoods are scheduled for turf conversion projects in the second half of 2021. Those include areas near Palm Meadows, Verandas, Summer Place, Corta Bella and Rancho Verde.
Comments or questions regarding the upcoming turf conversion should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City’s turf conversion efforts are made possible through a water conservation rebate program offered by Indio Water Authority. To learn more about obtaining a rebate for commercial and residential properties, go to www.indiowater.org/rebates.
