Toilet Rebate Program Continued
A high-efficiency toilet can save you water and money. Effective July 1, 2013, Rockwood Water PUD will again be offering its customers a $50 rebate when they replace a toilet that uses 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) or more with a new WaterSense labeled toilet. To earn the WaterSense label, toilets must use no more than 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf) and meet rigorous performance criteria.
WaterSense Toilet Rebate Program Eligibility and Requirements:
- Purchase an eligible toilet between July 1 and June 30. For a complete list of approved models, visit: http://www.epa.gov/watersense/product_search.html
- Complete and submit a WaterSense Toilet Rebate Form
by June 30. Sales receipt specifying toilet brand/model and proof of recycling of old toilet is required.
- You must be a Rockwood Water PUD customer which owns the property where the new toilet is being installed or obtain the signature of the property owner on the WaterSense Toilet Rebate Form. You must receive water from Rockwood Water PUD and your account must be active and
in good standing.
- Each rebate is worth $50; up to 2 rebates per single-family residential account and up to 3 rebates per commercial customer account.
- Rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The program will end when funds are depleted for the current fiscal year budget or no longer funded.
Note: WaterSense Toilet Rebate Forms that are incomplete, lacking required documents, or missing a signature will be returned. WaterSense Toilet Rebate Forms and/or documents received after June 30 will not be processed. Rockwood Water PUD is not responsible for items lost or delayed in the mail.
