The district’s Water Efficient Landscape Program (WELP) pays homeowners up to $2 per square foot when you upgrade thirsty grass to water efficient landscaping. Every square foot of grass converted to water-efficient landscaping saves approximately 45 gallons of water a year. That’s a lot of water!
If you’re only walking on the lawn when you’re pushing the lawn mower, consider replacing the grass with colorful, water-smart landscapes. You’ll save water, money and time on yard work for years to come. Visit wcwcd.org for details.
Santa Clara has approved the Conservancy District’s increase in the Excess Water Use Surcharge for new connections to the District’s regional system connecting on or after January 1, 2023.
In addition to existing water rates, beginning January 1, 2023, fees for high water use will be assessed to users who exceed a monthly water use threshold. The monthly water use threshold is based on the date the user’s impact fee was paid. Users who paid an impact fee on or prior to December 31, 2022 will be assessed $1 per 1,000 gallons for excess use while users who paid an impact fee on or after January 1, 2023 will be assessed $10 per 1,000 gallons for excess use. The collected fees will fund conservation initiatives. Click here for details.
