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 the purchase of qualifying water-saving appliances or devices. The rebate is offered on a first-come, first-served basis to all active water customers.
The Water Conservation Rebate Program was approved by the City Council again for this year. The program provides financial incentives for residents who conserve water.
Who is eligible for the Wichita Water Conservation Rebate?
Rebates are available to customers who have active utility accounts with the Public Works & Utilities for the delivery of potable water. The application and submittal instructions are available at Wichita.gov
To qualify for the rebate, Wichita residents submit an application to the city for approved water-saving devices or appliances that they’ve purchased in the current year – up to a limit of 5 rebated items per water customer. Rebates are available only until each year’s budget is exhausted.
You will need your receipt. Complete rebate terms are available on the application at the city website.
Applications can be found online at wichita.gov.
What products qualify for the Water Conservation Rebate?
A list of qualifying brands and model numbers are available at www.savewichitawater.com, along with the application you’ll need to fill out to request the rebates. Rebates may not exceed the purchase price of qualifying items.
Do bring the printout with you when you’re shopping so that you can be sure you’re buying a qualifying appliance. Here are the general guidelines:
Items potentially eligible for a rebate:
- Low flow toilets or urinals
- High-efficiency dishwashers
- High-efficiency clothes washers
- Smart Irrigation Controllers
- Rain Sensor-Shutoffs
- Rain barrels
- Dual flush toilet conversion kits
The rebates range from $50 to $100, depending on the appliance. Again, be sure to visit the website to find lists of qualifying devices before you buy. The water rebate is available until the funds in the program have been exhausted.
