Private Well Meter Rebate Program


Receive up to $150 for a new meter installed on a qualifying well

Valley Water will provide a rebate of up to $150 for the installation of a NEW, approved water meter on a qualifying well. (Information about acceptable meters can be found on the Private Well Meter Rebate Program Application.)

Why install water meters on wells?

Metering helps well owners:

  • Better monitor their water use. 
  • More accurately report on water usage. 
  • Detect leaks and other well maintenance issues. 
  • Capture water savings due to conservation measures.

How to apply:

To qualify, the well must be located within one of the district’s active groundwater charge zones (Zones W-2 or W-5) and the account associated with the well must be in good standing (no outstanding delinquent payments due).

  1. Applicant must contact the Santa Clara Valley Water District for pre-approval, before the start of the project: (408) 630-3400.
  2. Select and install qualifying equipment.
  3. Submit a completed Private Well Meter Rebate Program Application with the required documentation (see application for more information).
  4. The Santa Clara Valley Water District will issue a check within approximately 12 weeks after all applicant requirements have been met.
  5. Rebates are available until June 30, 2021 or until funding is depleted, whichever comes first.
