Making conservation easy - for businesses
There are more than 5,000 acres of useless grass in Southern Nevada that only gets used when someone runs a lawn mower over it. And while residential property owners have stepped up and removed grass from their yards through the Water Smarts Landscapes rebate, nearly 80 percent of that water-thirsty turf is on commercial properties. Patrick Watson, Conservation Programs Administrator with the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), discusses why and how businesses should step up their conservation efforts, and the SNWA cash incentives and programs designed to make it easy for businesses, HOAs and multifamily properties. City of Henderson Conservation and Customer Care Supervisor Tina Chen also provides details about added financial incentives for business properties in Henderson on episode 9 of the Water Smarts Podcast, “Making conservation easy –for businesses.” Recommended resources:Earn $3 a square foot for grass replaced with a Water Smart Landscape.Learn more about water-saving technologies and the Water Efficient Technologies rebate.Commercial properties can save water and money with our conservation programs for business.
