Congratulations Water Savvy Landscape Contest Winners!

Racoosin Residence

The Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD/District) is pleased to announce the winners of its 12th annual Water Savvy Landscape Contest which promotes water efficiency by recognizing residents who have installed beautiful, water saving landscapes. This year’s Grand Prize Winners are Jeffrey Racoosin, Jeff and Pamela Williams, Ed Hildebrand, and Fred Burkardt. Honorable Mention winners are Lloyd Grishow and Danielle Tober.  
Open to all CVWD customers, the 2018 contest kicked-off in February and closed at the end of April. Each landscape was evaluated based on set criteria which included overall water efficiency, appearance, selection of plant material, and irrigation design. The winners were formally recognized at the CVWD Board of Directors meeting on July 24th.
 “Over 60% of residential water usage occurs outdoors, and CVWD is committed to helping our customers be water wise in their landscapes,” stated CVWD Board President James V. Curatalo Jr. “We commend these model residents and thank them for setting the example with their water efficient landscapes which help beautify our community.”
Grand Prize Winners receive a $250 gift certificate to a local nursery and an invitation to participate in CVWD’s Garden Tour. All winners receive a sign for their yard and recognition on the CVWD website and in The Pipeline customer newsletter. Since the inception of the program in 2007, CVWD has recognized 66 homeowners for their beautiful, water-friendly landscapes that feature low water using plants, rock pathways, and efficient irrigation systems.
