In addition, the Municipal Water District of Orange County offers a 30-cent-per-square-foot rebate to homeowners who install artificial turf.

Fountain Valley’s decision follows discussion by Garden Grove officials about lifting a ban on artificial turf on residential properties. The council last month postponed a vote on the matter, asking staff to get more information about the fake grass.

Council members had questions about lead content in some artificial turf brands, pending lawsuits against some artificial turf manufacturers in New Jersey and California and concerns about drainage and maintenance.
