Large landscapes can use an extensive amount of water for irrigation. The SFPUC is committed to improving and maintaining outdoor spaces in the City in a resource-efficient manner. Through the following programs your site could receive free technical assistance to evaluate the efficiency of your system and financial incentives for implementing water-saving improvements.
NEW UPDATE! Large Landscape Grant Program
The SFPUC is excited to announce it is now accepting applications for the 2016-2017 Large Landscape Grant Program (LLGP). The SFPUC has $1.5M in available match funding for retail water service customers who can demonstrate implementation of water-saving improvement projects that reduce the use of potable water for landscape irrigation. Projects must have a half-acre or more of irrigated area and meet the additional eligibility criteria listed in the following LLGP Guidelines and Application.
The deadline for submitting a grant application is 5:00 pm on Wednesday, November 30th. For questions about the LLGP process or a specific question about a potential project, please contact us at email@example.com.
Landscape Technical Assistance Program
Through our Landscape Technical Assistance Program (LTAP), the SFPUC can help retail water users with a half-acre or more of landscape area identify water saving opportunities that can improve irrigation efficiency, reduce water use, and save money. By participating in LTAP, your site will receive a site evaluation conducted by our expert landscape architect and irrigation designer, as well as a customized site report including:
- Summary of existing irrigation system conditions and assessment of landscape plantings
- Suggestions for replacing high water use plants with alternative low water use species
- Prioritized recommendations that improve irrigation efficiency and plant health
- Estimate of potential annual water and cost savings
- Cost estimate for implementing recommendations
- Site-specific water budget
