When my uncle (a long time Topanga resident) passed away I decided I need to live life to the fullest and enjoy every day, I decided to work in a pet store.

The West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) announced today that it has increased the current Turf Removal Incentive from $2 to $3 per square foot within its service area thanks to a grant from the California Department of Water Resources and funding from the Metropolitan Water District. This limited time offer allows West Basin residents to replace their high water use lawns with efficient California Friendly plants and landscapes. This incentive will help in mitigating the impacts of this and future droughts.
