The City of Camrose is bringing back the Low Flow Toilet Rebate Program for 2009’s summer season from July 1 to Aug. 31. The rebate offers $80 to those who replace an older, high volume toilet with a eligible, newer low-flow model in their home with a limit of one per household for purchases after Oct. 31, 2008 and installations before Aug. 31, 2009.

The City of Camrose is running the Low Flow Toilet Rebate Program again hoping that it will encourage and educate the citizens of Camrose on the subject of water conservation. Conserving water will not only benefit the environment from which the resource is taken, but it will also benefit the City by reducing the load put on the water treatment plant and citizens and reducing their water bills by using less water. All citizens of the City of Camrose who live within city limits are eligible for this rebate. To qualify for the program, the City of Camrose must receive the following:

1. The address in which the toilet is to be installed.

2. Receipt of purchase of new, approved low-flow toilet.

3. Pictures of the washroom, before and after installation.

4. Evidence that the toilet was made none functional.

Camrose is running this program alongside, but having no affiliation with the federal government’s Home Renovation Tax Credit and ecoENERGY Retrofit—home grant programs that offer tax benefits for those doing certain home renovations.

Toilet Rebate Programs in the US

More and more cities and municipalities are offering a rebate for the replacement of old, inefficient toilets with Low Flow or High Efficiency Toilets (HET) using 1.6 gallons or less per flush. I compiled this list to make it easier for you to find out if your city, county or water authority is participating in a rebate program. Please note that links to most authorities are included. I will try to keep adding more as they become available. If you know about programs I have not listed, please comment so I can add them.
