Woodstock renews participation in toilet rebate program

The Woodstock City Council has renewed its participation in a program that provides rebates of up to $100 per fixture to the owner or renter of a single-family home who replaces a conventional toilet with a water-saving model.

The Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District Toilet Rebate Program has the district providing administrative services, and the city, processing and issuing rebate credits to water customers, paying the district a $10 processing fee per toilet, and promoting the program on its website, in bill inserts and mailings, and in other communications.

Woodstock also agreed to provide $5,000 in funding for the term of the program, through June 30, 2019.

The single-family home must have been built in 1993 or earlier, according to a water district web page. There’s a two-rebate limit per household, and proof of purchase is required of a WaterSense-labeled toilet using 1.28 gallons of water per flush or less. Information: http://bit.ly/2jRcU71
