worms in grass

I live in a Southwest desert climate. I have thousands of tiny worms in
my Santa Anna Bermuda grass. They are approximately 1/2" long, skinny,
reddish/pink and opaque. They push up little dirt granulars at night and
make thousands of tiny mounds. Dirt is like silt. As the dirt is
appearing, the grass is disappearing. I now have large patches (some 10
sq ft) of nothing but dirt and worm mounds.
Took in a sample of a dozen worms to the Arizona State Agriculture Co-op.
They said it is a type of earthworm and is beneficial to soil. They said
to stop watering the grass every other day, and see if they go deeper into
the soil. I stopped for 4 weeks. Worms apparently went deeper because
the mounds disappeared. But then it rained and the worms are back.
Any suggestions? I want to save my grass.
