Boulder Creek, CA, July 15, 2020 — The San Lorenzo Valley Water District is implementing a low-income assistance program for up to 208 qualifying residential water customers starting July 15.
Income-eligible customers who currently receive a discounted rate through PG&E’s CARE program may be eligible to receive $10 off their monthly water bill.
To see if your household qualifies, answer these three questions:
• Yes, I pay SLVWD for an individually metered residential water service AND
• Yes, I receive a discounted rate through PG&E’s CARE program for the same address and in the same name AND
• Yes, I live at the property that receives these services and the SLVWD bill is in my name
If you said yes to all three of the required qualifications, you may apply by doing the following:
• Complete a web form available here https://www.slvwd.com/customer-service/webforms/rate-assistance-program
• Attach your most recent PG&E bill showing participation in the CARE program for the same address as the water bill.
• If you are a tenant, attach a copy of your lease agreement. If you do not have a lease agreement, contact Customer Service so SLVWD can send the owner a verification form.
Approved applications will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

A special district is a local government agency formed by voters to perform a needed service, such as water or sewer. The District’s boundaries comprise approximately 60 square miles and 190 miles of pipeline. The District currently provides service to approximately 7,900 residential, commercial, and institutional connections. The District relies on both surface water and groundwater resources, including nine currently active stream diversions, one groundwater spring, and eight active groundwater wells. The District owns, operates, and maintains two water systems from separate water sources. These sources are derived solely from rainfall within the San Lorenzo River watershed.
