Water Efficiency Rebate

Why use water efficient products?

By using water efficient products and practices, you can save water plus energy which adds up to money savings. If your clothes washer or toilet is more than 10 years old you may want to replace them with newer, more efficient models. And the City of Brooklyn Park is offering an incentive to prompt you to make the switch: up to $125 in rebates.

Did you know?

Clothes washers that have earned the ENERGY STAR certification use about 40 percent less water and about 25 percent less energy than a regular washer.

Older, inefficient toilets are a major source of wasted water in many homes.

Replacing a standard clock timer with a Water Sense labeled irrigation controller can save an average home nearly 8,800 gallons of water annually.
