Toilet Rebate PROGram
Madison Water Utility is offering rebates of up to $100 for residential customers and owners of apartment buildings who replace high water using toilets with EPA WaterSense-rated High Efficiency Toilet (HET) models. The program is part of the our Water Conservation and Sustainability Plan to reduce per capita water use 20 percent by the year 2020, with the goal of protecting the quality and quantity of the deep-well aquifer that supplies the Madison area.
Toilets eligible for rebate must be HETs (which use an average of 1.28 gallons per flush) and must be on the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) WaterSense list. The program is for one rebate per household or apartment unit.
To apply for the rebate, you must submit two items:
These items must be mailed or delivered to the following address:
Owners may install the toilets themselves, or they may hire a plumber or contractor to do the job. Owners are responsible for proper installation and associated costs. Installation may be subject to verification by water utility personnel. Toilets may be purchased at any supplier as long as they are on the WaterSense list of HETs.
Rebate checks of up to $100 (not to exceed actual purchase price) will be sent to the customer's address or credited to the customer's water bill, after applications are processed. Please allow four to six weeks. Rebates are not available for the costs of installation.
Disposal of Old Toilets
Replaced toilets should be disposed of so that they cannot be re-used. This can be done by placing them at the curb for pick-up by the Streets and Recycling Department.
