Clackamas River Water Providers encourages water conservation to promote wise water use because everyone depends on water! Water must be used efficiently or there may not be enough for drinking, irrigation, commercial uses, fish, and emergencies such as fire-fighting. We are committed to helping our customers do whatever they can to use their water more efficiently.
To help in this quest, we are offering five water use rebates up to $285 in value. These rebates are available each fiscal year (July 1st-June 30th) on a first-come, first-served basis until the program funds are depleted.
We are offering two choices in Indoor Rebates. Customers can take advantage of each rebate one time, per fiscal year (July 1st-June 30th) per account.
Toilet Rebate Older toilets use a lot of water – 3 ½, 5, or even 7 gallons with every flush. High Efficiency Toilets (HETs) use only 1.28 gallons per flush or less. Replacing a 3.5 gpf toilet with a 1.28 gpf WaterSense labeled toilet could save as much as 4,000* gallons per person per year. (*Based on the national estimate of 5 flushes per person per day).
Apply for a $100 rebate when you replace your current water-wasting toilet with a new HET High Efficiency Toilet. Limit: 1 toilet per household. Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing.
Here are two great reasons to purchase an HET right now
1. Selecting the right toilet is easy, thanks to WaterSense – a new program sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency. The WaterSense label is used on toilets that are certified by independent laboratory testing to meet rigorous criteria for both performance and efficiency. Only HETs that complete the certification process earn the WaterSense label.
2. For a limited time, Clackamas River Water Providers will be offering a $100 rebate when you replace a toilet that uses 1.6 gallons per flush (gpf) or more with a new WaterSense labeled HET toilet. Click here to see a list of toliets that that qualify for the rebate.
Washing Machines Rebate Up to $75 rebate – one per account. Model number required. Machines being replaced must be Energy Star certified residential clothes washers. Click here to see a list of Energy Star washing machines that that qualify for the rebate.
