On May 9th, 2015, the Board adopted the BLSMWC Residential Toilet Rebate Program.  Shareholders are encouraged to apply for this Rebate by submitting an application to the business office.  (Application is below.)  If approved, the rebate will be applied as credit towards the Shareholder’s account.

Purpose:  In order to maximize water resources, the BLSMWC is offering a Residential Toilet Rebate Program.  The intent of the Rebate Program is to encourage the use of water-efficient toilets, which benefits both Shareholders and the BLSMWC.

Rebate:  If all of the requirements listed below are satisfied, a rebate of $50.00 per toilet (limit 2 per household) will be applied to the Shareholder’s account.  Important – please read terms and conditions below.

Eligibility:  If your Blue Lake Springs home was built before 1994, and your home where the toilet is installed is serviced by BLSMWC, and you have a toilet that uses in excess of 3.0 gallons of water per flush or more, and you are replacing said toilet with an approved, water-efficient (low-flow) toilet that use 1.6 gallons per flush or less, you may be eligible for this Rebate Program (limit 2 per household).  Shareholders must submit to BLSMWC a sales receipt for each purchased low-flow toilet within 1 year from the date of purchase.  Shareholders must also allow BLSMWC’s staff to inspect the toilet installation before credit is applied to the Shareholder’s water account.  This program is subject to change without notice.

Expiration: When the funds run out.
