    City of Coachella makes no representation or warranty relating to contracted services or products that may be installed in converted areas, including any hazardous substances that may be contained in any product. Removal of turf and installation of water efficient devices will help reduce water use, but does not guarantee that less water will be used. Water use depends on many factors, including plant types, proper sprinkler settings, and personal water use habits. This application is for a rebate only. By participating in the program, you waive and release the City and its employees, from any and all claims and causes of action arising out of the removal of turf and/or the purchase, installation or use of devices in connection with this Residential Turf Removal rebate program. Any claim you may have based upon any defect or failure of performance of a contracted service or device purchased by you should be pursued with the contractor or manufacturer/distributor. The City only enforces the terms and conditions of the Residential Turf Removal Program. The applicant is responsible for complying with all applicable laws, codes, policies, covenants, conditions, and restrictions that may apply. Quality and appearance of the converted area is the responsibility of the applicant, but may be reviewed periodically by the City to ensure program compliance. Failure to maintain the property in program compliance may result in the participant being required to refund all or a portion of the rebate. By signing below, the applicant consents to the recovery by the City of all or a portion of a previously granted rebate for a property that is not maintained in compliance with the program, through the addition of a surcharge on the applicant's water bill over whatever period of time is deemed appropriate by the City.

    which a rebate is requested as described in this application, at any time without further notice to the applicant or
    any occupant of the Property; and (ii) agrees to cooperate with the City to provide access to the City employees to
    any portion of the applicant's fenced front or side yard, for the purpose of verifying the conversion of the Property's
    landscaping described in this application, and verifying the ongoing maintenance of the converted area.
