The Cucamonga Valley Water District is now accepting applications for its annual Water Savvy Landscape Contest. The goal of the program is to promote outdoor water use efficiency through landscaping by recognizing customers whose landscapes are both beautiful and water saving. Sponsored by Southern California Edison, the contest is open to all CVWD customers and will run through April 30, 2020. Up to four winners will receive a $250 gift card to a local nursery, a sign for their yard, and other recognition.
Landscapes will be judged based on set criteria: water use efficiency, appearance, plant selection, and irrigation design. Overall natural resource conservation will be evaluated. Examples include water efficient plants, u se of artificial turf, permeable hardscapes and organic materials.
“Using our precious water resource wisely is always important, and we commend residents who are doing their part through their water efficient landscapes,” stated CVWD Board President James V. Curatalo Jr. “The Landscape Contest is a great way to showcase examples of beautiful landscapes that also save water. If you or your neighbors have a model landscape, we encourage you to apply!”
CVWD is committed to assisting customers in improving outdoor water use efficiency and educating residents through programs like the Water Savvy Garden Tour, its water timer tune-up programs, and drought tolerant landscape workshops.
