Due to Santa Clara County’s Shelter in Place Order, Valley Water is modifying some of their water conservation activities including: 
DIY Water Home Survey: ?Kits may be mailed to customers; a digital option is also available. 

Conservation Materials: Can be mailed once the DIY Home Water Survey has been completed. 

Waterwise Outdoor Surveys: Home visits are temporarily on hold. Customers may apply for the service and will be placed on a waitlist. Customers may submit online for rebates. 

Landscape Rebates: Onsite pre-inspections are temporarily on hold. Customers may apply for the Landscape Rebate Program and will be placed on a waitlist.  Rebates that do not require pre-inspection measurements, such as weather based irrigation controller rebates, irrigation equipment, or rainwater capture components may be processed and approved without a site visit.   

Landscape Materials: Customers may request materials from Valley Water.
