Toilet Rebate Program News!
New Phase Opens October 1, 2014
The Toilet Rebate Program provides eligible water customers a rebate of up to $100 for replacing a high flush toilet (manufactured before 1994) with a new low flush model.
NEW REQUIREMENT: Participants at Single Family and Multi-family locations MUST purchase and install an EPA WaterSense labeled high efficiency toilet. These models save 20% more water than regular low flush toilets. More than 2,000 toilet models carry the WaterSense label, including many low-cost models found in local stores.
