Drought Updates

Santa Clara County is in a severe drought emergency. Learn about the latest developments and regulations by visiting our Drought Information page.  


Commercial Watering Ban

The State of California has banned the watering of decorative grass by commercial, industrial and institutional (CII) properties, including homeowners' associations. 

The watering of decorative CII lawns is now subject to fines under a new Valley Water ordinance. The regulation does not apply to residential lawns, school fields, sports fields, or areas regularly used for civic or community events.

Quickly adapt your lawn to meet the ban on irrigating decorative turf with Valley Water's landscape rebates, including the new lawn-to-mulch conversion rebate.
