Large Property Turf Replacement Rebate Program 

Multi-family and non-residential water customers can now receive $1.20 per square foot to convert areas of high-water, cool-season turf grass (such as Kentucky Bluegrass) into native and waterwise landscapes.

In addition to supporting the city's water conservation goals, benefits of these landscapes include savings on your water bill, lower long-term maintenance, habitat for pollinators, and increased drought resilience.

Eligible water customers include

Businesses, HOAs, multi-family complexes, schools, parks, faith-based organizations, and other commercial, industrial, or institutional water customers within the City and County of Broomfield.
