To encourage residents to conserve water, Redwood City officials are promoting a program that offers rebates for homes that replace lawns with drought-tolerant landscaping. 

City officials say outdoor water use comprises up to 50 percent of all of the water used on residential properties, which for the average Redwood City household is about 200 gallons each day. 

With the Lawn Be Gone program, single-family residences that are customers of Redwood City Water can qualify for rebates of up to $1,000 for replacing lawns with water-efficient plants. 

"The Lawn Be Gone program not only makes our homes and neighborhoods more beautiful, it also promotes a sustainable community by saving thousands of gallons of water every year," Redwood City Mayor Jeffrey Gee said in a statement. 

More information on the Lawn Be Gone program can be found at www.redwoodcity.org/LawnBeGone. For other water saving services and updates on 2014 drought conditions, residents are asked to visit www.redwoodcity.org/conservation
