Homeowners' Associations (HOAs)

Homeowners' Associations (HOAs)

Using water wisely is a way of life in California and the Santa Clarita Valley. While rain and show provided significant water throughout the state and the SCV early in 2023, consecutive, multi-year drought and existing impacts on our groundwater supplies will take time to build back our banked reserves for future dry years.

SCV Water is here to help you save water and money! To increase your water-use efficiency, take advantage of our rebate programs.

Large Landscapes


Non-Functional Turf

Do you know what non-functional turf is? 

NFT is mowed grass that is decorative and not otherwise used for human recreation purposes. These areas of grass are commonly found between sidewalks and streets, in medians, in parking lots and in front of businesses, institutions, and common areas of developments maintained by homeowner associations.

Did you know there is a law that governs the irrigation of non-functional turf?

Effective January 1, 2024, AB 1572 prohibits the use of potable water for the irrigation of non-functional turf located on commercial, industrial, municipal, institutional, and common interest developments including Homeowners Associations. Various customer groups must comply within the next several years.
