Conservation For Businesses

(November 17, 2015)

Despite a vastly increased budget during the drought, Santa Clara Valley Water District's funding for certain programs has been depleted for the current fiscal year. We are still accepting applications for some programs, however there is no guarantee your project will be approved for a rebate. Applications are processed in the order in which they are received.

For the Water Submeter and Custom/Measured Rebate Programs, applications processed after funding is exhausted will be placed on a waiting list in case additional funds are added at a later date.

The following programs will help get your business or school on the water-saving track:


Commercial properties have two choices:
