Toilets eligible for rebate must be HETs (which use 1.28 gallons per flush or less) and must be on the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) WaterSense list. The program is limited to one rebate in the form of a bill credit per household or apartment unit for residential and multi-family customers. Commercial, industrial, and public authority customers are limited to 20 rebates in the form of bill credits per property address.

Installation - Owners may install the toilets themselves, or they may hire a plumber or contractor to do the job. Owners are responsible for proper installation and associated costs. Installation may be subject to verification by water utility personnel. Toilets may be purchased at any supplier as long as they are on the WaterSense list of HETs.
Rebate Bill Credits - Bill credits of up to $100 (not to exceed actual purchase price) will appear on the customer's Madison Municipal Services bill after applications are processed. Please allow four to six weeks. Rebates are not available for the costs of installation.
