Water Efficiency

Our community has done great work to save water. The City of San José joins the Santa Clara Valley Water District and San José water service providers in asking all residents and businesses to continue to do their part to preserve our drinking water supply. The City has water use rules that remain in effect at all times, regardless of water supply conditions. These rules are established in the San José Municipal code or by local water service providers.
