Letting your lawn go gold not only helps conserve water during our historic drought—you may have a chance to win a substantial credit toward your water bill if you enter the Golden Lawn Contest sponsored by Golden State Water Company and California’s Statewide conservation education program, Save Our Water.
“The majority of California’s residential water use is for outdoor irrigation, and this contest is a great opportunity to both recognize customers who are using water responsibly and embrace lawns that have gone gold,” said Denise Kruger, Senior Vice President of Regulated Utilities for Golden State Water.
Entering the contest is easy: Submit a photo of your golden lawn by Tuesday, September 29 for a chance to win the first-place prize: A $100 credit on your water bill, or second prize: A $50 credit on your water bill. Prizes will be awarded on September 30. Photos can be submitted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or sent to @GoldenStateH2O on Twitter using the #GoGoldCA hashtag.
