Here is the overall process:
First, you will validate your account by clicking the link below. Once validated, you will create your online profile and be given access to your personal dashboard. You can then view the progress of your project and view resources on completing it. We want you to have all the tools necessary to complete your project, so we have put together an educational assessment to confirm you are knowledgeable in all the steps necessary to complete your project.
Once you have taken your assessment, you are ready to submit your application. You will need to answer some questions about your project. Next, you will need to upload three current images that represent the area being converted (before you convert it). These pictures will be used as a reference at your pre-inspection. Then, you will need to upload your plans and plant and/or permeable material list. Once you have completed all of these steps, you can submit your application. Make sure you click the submit button.
Once your application gets submitted, you will need to sign and mail in a copy of the Terms and Conditions. Once received, SCV Water will review the application according to the design guidelines. If everything looks good, you will be notified to schedule a pre-inspection. Once this inspection is completed and the requirements are all met, you will be notified to start your project!
Please note that we pay upon completion of your project. This means that funds have not been set aside to pay you until you have uploaded photos of your complete project, we conduct a post-inspection, and you return a W-9 to us.
