The City of Wichita's annual effort to provide incentives for citizens to purchase and install approved water conserving devices has come to a successful close. Applications were accepted beginning in February and will no longer be accepted as all 2018 funds have been exhausted.
The City has approved 907 applications resulting in $100,038.38 in rebates provided to community residents. Rebates were distributed for 951 devices, including:
116 Washing Machines; 242 Dishwashers; 410 Toilets; 2 Dual Flush Valves, 58 Smart Irrigation Controllers, 14 Rain Sensor/Shutoffs, and 109 Rain Barrels. Initial projections indicate that installation of these water-conserving devices will save an estimated 25.3 million gallons of water each year.
Rebates were available to all customers having active accounts with the City of Wichita Public Works and Utilities for the delivery of potable water. Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2018 Rebate Program.
The City of Wichita continues to encourage all citizens to conserve water. More information is available at wichita.gov and savewichitawater.com. Customers are encouraged to contact the Water Conservation office at 268-8351 or email WaterRebate@wichita.gov with questions.
