The Town of Okotoks is once again encouraging water conservation by providing residents with a municipal rebate beginning May 1, 2015. Reducing water consumption is critical for Okotoks, as watering demand peaks during the summer months when the Sheep River aquifer provides the least water resources.
Rebates on approved water conservation purchases are available for Town of Okotoks residential property owners and renters. The 2015 rebate program will include WaterSense© certified high efficiency low flow toilets, on-demand hot water recirculating systems, water-efficient furnace-mounted humidifiers, rain barrels, residential rainwater harvesting systems, rain sensors for irrigation system controllers, organic and inorganic mulch, and drought tolerant ground cover or turf.
Approved items purchased as of January 1, 2015 are eligible. The rebates will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis through Town of Okotoks bi-monthly utility accounts. The program will continue until the $50,000 budget is exhausted.
Full program details are available at www.okotoks.ca/rebate or by contacting the Sustainability Coordinator at 403-938-8901.
