Rebate from the City of Wichita on Water-Saving Devices

Good news! If you are a Wichita resident who receives your water bill from Wichita Water Utilities, you may be eligible for a rebate on purchasing qualifying water-saving devices. The rebate is offered on a first-come, first-served basis to all active water customers.

The Wichita City Council approved $150,000 to continue the Water Conservation Rebate Program. The program encourages residents to purchase water-saving household devices by offering rebates in the form of credits to their water accounts.

Water Rebate in Wichita
The $150,000 rebate program funding allocation includes:

  • $75,000 – allocation for City of Wichita residential customers who have active utility accounts with Public Works & Utilities for the delivery of potable water
  • $50,000 – allocation for MABCD “Code Enforcement Liaison Program” to assist low-income homeowners with repairs related to water leaks and plumbing issues
  • $25,000 – allocation for wholesale customers to administer their own conservation program

The application, list of qualifying items, program requirements and submittal instructions are available at savewichitawater.com. Online and paper applications will be accepted through December 31, 2024, or until funds are exhausted. Rebates apply to any device purchased on or after January 1, 2024. Due to the current impact of the drought to the water supply, the rebate program has been revised to incentivize devices that will have the most immediate impact on water usage, specifically those devices that reduce outdoor watering and water loss due to leaks

General guidelines and eligible items are listed below. The City strongly recommends bringing a printout of the qualifying appliances for reference when shopping. There is a limit of five rebated items per water account. Rebates will not exceed the purchase price.

Rebates are available for up to:

·         Dual Flush Converter Kits (up to $50)

·         Hose Faucet Irrigation Controllers (up to $100)

·         Rain Barrels (up to $75)

·         Rain Sensor Shutoffs (up to $100)

·         Smart Irrigation Controllers (up to $100)

·         Toilet Repair Kits (up to $35)
