Water Dept. rebate program ends Sept. 30By Canton Citizen
If you were considering upgrading your bathroom with a new toilet, or thinking about purchasing a new clothes washer, you may want to do it in the next few weeks before the Canton Water Department Rebate Program comes to an end.
Residents can receive a $100 credit for replacing a toilet that uses 3.5 gallons per flush (gpf) or more with a WaterSense-labeled toilet that uses 1.28 gpf or less. The replacement toilet must be on the list of approved WaterSense-labeled toilets, available at www.epa.gov/watersense. There is a limit of two toilets per household.
Residents can also receive a $75 credit for the purchase and installation of clothes washers that have a water factor of 4.5 or less, as shown on the Energy Star list at www.energystar.gov. There is a limit of one clothes washer per household.
A $10 credit is offered for the installation of a dual-flush toilet conversion kit on a 1.6 gpf toilet. Dual-flush conversion kits easily convert standard toilets into water-saving toilets. There is a maximum limit of two kits per household.
All rebates are dispensed in the form of a credit on residential water/sewer bills. Terms and conditions apply, and residents are encouraged to call the Water Department prior to purchase to confirm eligibility. Only items replaced after July 25, 2011, are eligible.
Finally, residents may visit the Water Department during regular business hours to pick up free Niagara 1.5 gallon per minute (gpm) Earth Massage chrome showerheads, 1.5 gpm kitchen faucet aerators, and 1.0 gpm bathroom faucet aerators.
For more information, call the Canton Water and Sewer Department at 781-821-5017 or go to town.canton.ma.us.
The town of Canton has partnered with the Neponset River Watershed Association to help facilitate a grant from the EPA and MassDEP for a one-year Water Conservation Program.
