Important message about Water Conservation Rebates
: Despite a vastly increased budget during the drought, Santa Clara Valley Water District's funding for the Landscape Rebate Program is nearly depleted for the current fiscal year. 

  • We are still accepting applications, however we are no longer scheduling pre-inspections
  • Applications are processed in the order in which they are received
  • Applications processed after funding is exhausted will be placed on a waiting list in case additional funds are added at a later date

For more information, please call our Water Conservation Hotline at (408) 630-2554.
