Purified Water & Conservation

Water conservation is necessary during and after this drought emergency. Valley Water is also planning on increasing our local drinking water supply by using globally proven technologies to produce purified water from treated wastewater. The drought-proof source can help ensure Santa Clara County has a safe, sustainable water supply now and into the future.

But how does it work and what are its benefits?

Landscape Rebate Program

Our Landscape Rebate Program can help you save water and money, offering up to $3,000* for residential sites and $50,000* for commercial and multi-family sites.

Get started with your application 

*Maximum rebates may be even higher in some cost sharing areas.

Projects should not be started until a written Notice to Proceed is issued. Due to high participation rates, current application review time varies by project:

  • 6-8 weeks for Landscape Conversion and In-Line Drip rebates that require onsite pre-inspections. To expedite the review process, participants who are applying for the Landscape Conversion and In-Line Drip rebates will receive instructions for submitting self-guided measurements if they choose.
  • 2-3 weeks for Irrigation Equipment and Rainwater Capture rebates only.
