The program was first developed by Riverside Public Utilities and Western Municipal Water District, in partnership with the Toro® Company, for City of Riverside residents. These agencies have generously offered to expand the program to include Inland Empire Utilities Agency and its retail water agencies, including Monte Vista Water District. Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is providing funding for the nozzles.
The Water Saving Garden Friendly program was created to assist consumers in locating and learning about climate-appropriate plants for the Inland Empire. The program provides educational opportunities and easily identifiable and obtainable sources of climate-appropriate plants. With the increasing uncertainty of our future water supplies, the public has become aware of the need to utilize climate-appropriate plants. Unfortunately, most people don’t know where to begin and that’s where we come in. Click here for more info.
