By applying for or participating in any component of CVWD’s Programs, personal information listed on your application may be subject to disclosure to any member of the public who requests it pursuant to the California Public Records Act.
Neither CVWD, its contractors or agents, makes any representation or warranty regarding the contracted services or products that you may select for your Project(s) under the Program. Removal of turf, overhead spray irrigation, adjustable bubblers or emitters and traditional spray nozzles and the installation of water efficient devices and plants does not guarantee reduced water use. Any and all claims or causes of action you may have in connection with any defect or failure of performance of any contracted service or installed product or device provided to you for your Project may only be pursued with the contractor you hired or the appropriate manufacturer/distributor.
By participating in the Program and accepting the rebates provided, you thereby release CVWD, its contractors and agents, from any and all claims and causes of action that may arise out of your removal of turf from your property and/or the purchase, installation, and/or use of water efficient devices and plants in connection with the Residential Rotary Nozzle Rebate Program.
CVWD and its representative will take photos of Project areas being renovated through the Program and may use pre- and post-conversion photos for reproduction or promotional purposes. Identifying location features, such as address numbers, will not be included in any promotional materials.
CVWD is responsible for operating and enforcing the Terms and Conditions of the Residential Rotary Nozzle Rebate Program. As the Program participant, you are responsible for ensuring that your Project complies with all applicable Federal, State and local laws, CVWD rules and regulations, as well as applicable CC&Rs, and/or Homeowner Association restrictions. Quality of work and appearance of the converted area are the responsibility of the participant.
Further, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the CVWD, its directors, officers, employees, contractors, and agents, from all liability and claims of any kind arising out of, or related to, removal of turf, overhead spray irrigation, adjustable bubblers or emitters and traditional spray nozzles and purchase, installation, and use of water efficient devices and plants in connection with this Program.
