Water Conservation Rebate Application

The City of Derby’s Water Conservation Rebate Program was funded with an additional $10,000 for rebates in 2016.

High efficiency toilet
Rebates are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and credited to the Derby water customer’s account. The deadline is May 31, 2016 or when funds run out. Five rebates (maximum) are available per utility account.

The purpose of the rebate program is to encourage Derby residents to lowe
r water usage by making improvements to aging or inefficient fixtures and equipment.

Derby’s program focuses on limiting indoor and outdoor water use by:
  1. Retrofitting sprinkler systems with water-efficient sprinkler head nozzles to reduce runoff (minimum of 15 required).
  2. Adding smart controllers to irrigation systems to limit watering frequency.
  3. Promoting the use of rain barrels to collect rainwater for watering plants at a later time.
  4. Installation of High Efficiency (HE) Toilets (1.28 gallons/flush or less).
  5. Dishwashers
  6. Washing machines
  7. Urinals
  8. Dual-flush conversion kits
  9. Electronic rain sensor, soil moisture sensor or other type of new technology designed to disable or delay automatic irrigation systems due to rain or other conditions that make watering grass unnecessary.
    *Standard rain sensors required by Derby City Ordinance 1932 are NOT eligible for the rebate program.

If residents have questions, they should call City Hall at 788-1424 (Mon. - Thurs., 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. or Fri., 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.).
