SINGLE FAMILY TOILET REBATE PROGRAM
The Henry County Water Authority (HCWA) continues to promote wise water use among its customers, providing financial incentives for their participation in the Toilet Rebate Program.
The Authority is reinvesting in the state's Toilet Rebate Program annually through its continual partnership with the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District. When budgeted funds are available, HCWA customers may receive credit on their monthly water bill for upgrading their homes with Ultra High Efficient Toilets (UHET) of 1.1 gallons per flush or less.
First, HCWA customers must go to the Metro North Georgia Water Planning District website for an application to determine which toilets are approved for the rebate. After the customer installs an approved toilet, they must contact the Metro North Georgia Water District to have that installation verified.
The District then notifies the HCWA of approved applicants who have complied with all program requirements.
If customers are in good standing on their HCWA account, they can receive a $75 credit (max of 2 toilets) on an upcoming water bill.
As long as the HCWA is listed on the Metro North Georgia Water District Web site as one of the water systems currently participating in the Toilet Rebate Program, funds will be available to underwrite the rebates for Authority customers. When the budgeted funds are exhausted, the Authority will remove its name from the list, an indication to HCWA customers that rebates are no longer available.
Note: only homeowners with residences built in 1993 or earlier are eligible for the program, and other qualifications apply as outlined by the Metro North Georgia Water Planning District.
MULTI-FAMILY TOILET REBATE PROGRAM
The Henry County Water Authority (HCWA) continues to promote wise water use among its customers, providing financial incentives for their participation in the Toilet Rebate Program. The Authority has partnered with the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District to participate in the state's Single Family and Multi-Family Toilet Rebate Program.
Multi-family property managers/owners (including apartments, townhome communities, and condominiums) are also invited to participate in a rebate program to replace old, inefficient toilets. Property must be built prior to 1994 for residential use, have a master-metered residential account in good standing and up-to-date on payments, and must replace a minimum of 30 toilets.
When budgeted funds are available, HCWA customers may receive credit on their monthly water bill for upgrading their multi-family units with water-efficient toilets.
Rebates are limited and are issued on a first-come, first-serve basis. When the budgeted funds are exhausted, all interested parties will need to wait until the following year to apply when more funds become available.
For FAQs, eligibility requirements, approved toilets, and to apply online, HCWA customers can contact 404-463-8645, email@example.com, or go directly to the District's Web site at www.northgeorgiawater.com to get started.
