Plumbing Fixture Retrofit Requirements
In January 2017 the City of Watsonville updated its water conservation program to better protect the city’s water resources, reduce consumption, and follow the requirements of State Bill 407. This update applies to properties located within the City of Watsonville and those in unincorporated Santa Cruz County that are supplied water by the City of Watsonville. All properties at the time of sale must retrofit water fixtures that do not meet high efficiency standards. At the time of sale, sellers must complete a Water Conservation Certificate for Property Transfers form, or alternatively, buyers may complete the Transfer of Responsibility to Retrofit form.
