The Municipal Water District of Orange County has an awesome turf removal program that you should take advantage of. It's really simple and here is how it works (info from the mwdoc website).
  • Only one turf removal rebate per address will be issued.
  • A minimum of 250 square feet of turn must be removed.
  • A maximum of 10,00 square feet of turf may be removed.
  • Notices to proceed are valid for 60 days. Projects must be completed and the post turf removal site inspection scheduled prior to the authorization expiring.
  • Rebates may be considered taxable income and a signed IRS W-9 form is required for rebates of $600 or more.
  • Converted areas are subject to mandatory pre and post turf removal site inspections.
  • The converted area must remain in compliance with all program conditions for a period of 5 years.
