In 2008, Western Municipal Water District launched an annual landscape contest in an effort to promote water efficient landscaping, and to obtain beautiful photographs to inspire homeowners. That first contest covered only Riverside and the unincorporated area of Woodcrest. Each year, more water agencies joined the contest. Today, the contest covers all of western Riverside and San Bernardino counties encompassing the Inland Empire. It is now offered every other year.
