Toilet rebate in Little Spokane River watershed

Water-saving rebates available

Rebates up to $300 are available for residents of the Little Spokane River watershed who install water-saving washing machines and toilets.

The offer covers two toilets certified by the WaterSense label and an Energy Star-certified washer, each for $100. However, the toilet rebate is available only for homes built in 1994 or earlier.

Homes built after 1994 were required to have water-saving toilets.

About 8,000 households are eligible for the rebates, offered by a coalition of governments dubbed the Little Spokane WaterSmart Alliance.The coalition includes the state Department of Ecology, which put up $50,000 for the rebates.

Communities in the watershed include Diamond Lake, Elk, Chattaroy, Camden, Colbert, Deer Park, Sacheen Lake, Riverside, Eloika Lake, Fan Lake, Clayton and Denison.
