The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has a rebate program that provides a rebate for removing turf grass at California single-family residences. The turf rebate program is financed by the Proposition 1 water bond approved by voters in 2014. The program will help further reduce water use in homes by replacing more than 10 million square feet of lawn. DWR will oversee the rebate program, that provides up to $2 per square foot for lawn replacement. Californians can visit the Save Our Water Rebates website to apply for the rebate.

In September 2009, the Napa County Board of Supervisors authorized County staff to begin outreach on a water conservation program in the unincorporated county, specifically targeting the Milliken-Sarco-Tulocay (MST) area. County staff, with input from the agricultural community, the Napa County Resource Conservation District, and the California Department of Fish and Game have come up with some opportunities to help residents, growers, and winery owners alike conserve water.
