  • Timer must remain at the installation site for a minimum of two (2) years.
  • CCWD will be providing follow-up services to ensure proper setup if water use does not improve significantly after installation.

    Disclaimers

  • CCWD reserves the right to deny any application that does not meet all requirements outlined above.
  • Due to variables beyond the control of CCWD, the District cannot guarantee that the installation of 'Smart' irrigation controller(s) will result in a lower utility bill.
