We offer water conservation rebates and loans

Smart Sprinkler Control Rebate

Landscape watering is often more than 50% of the total annual water use for a commercial property. To reduce landscape water use, consider buying a new Smart Water Application Technologies (SWAT) performance-tested WaterSense-labeled sprinkler controller.  Sprinkler controllers must be listed on the EPA WaterSense website to qualify for the rebate. Look for the WaterSense label on products or search the WaterSense website for a qualified controller here.

We offer the following rebate:

  • $25 per sprinkler zone up to a maximum of $2000 per site

Rebates are for replacing existing commercial sprinkler controllers and not intended for new construction.

Please contact us before you start your project to see if funds are still available if you plan to replace more than 5 sprinkler controllers.

Apply now.  You can print a paper application here.  You can email the application to ems.answers@eweb.org.

Toilet rebate

Older toilets or urinals could be one of your business's largest water use. Consider buying a new, performance-tested WaterSense-labeled toilet to save water with every flush. Your new toilet must replace a toilet that uses 1.6 gallons or more per flush. New urinals must replace existing urinals that use 1.0 gallons per flush or more. New construction is not eligible for this rebate.

Please contact us before you start your project to see if funds are still available if you plan to replace more than five toilets.

We offer the following rebates:

  • $100 rebate for WaterSense labeled 1.00 gpf or less Ultra High Efficiency Toilets (UHET)
  • $100 rebate for WaterSense labeled .5 gpf or less urinals
  • $50 rebate for WaterSense labeled 1.28 gpf or less High Efficiency Toilets (HET)

To apply for a rebate, please complete and submit a toilet rebate application.
