The Santa Clara Valley Water District (District) manages an integrated water resources system that includes the supply of clean, safe water, flood protection and stewardship of streams on behalf of Santa Clara County’s 1.9 million residents.

The District was created by an act of the California Legislature, and operates as a state of California Special District, with jurisdiction throughout Santa Clara County. The District’s mission is to provide Silicon Valley safe, clean water for a healthy life, environment, and economy.

The Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program (Safe, Clean Water) is a 15-year strategy to ensure uninterrupted water resources services in Santa Clara County. In November 2012, county voters approved Safe, Clean Water ballot measure with an overwhelming majority of nearly 74%. The countywide special parcel tax sunsets on June 30, 2028. The grants program is being implemented to address key performance indicators associated with priorities identified in the Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program.
