Water Conservation for Your Business
By conserving water at your business, you are not only saving money on your water bill, put possibly on your energy bill too. The City of Tumwater offers Business, Industry, Government and Multi-Family property owners rebates and incentives for upgrading to water efficient fixtures and equipment.
Water Savings Incentives
- WaterSmart Technology Rebate: provides up to 75% funding for water saving projects at your place of business. All industrial, commercial, and institutional sewer customers are eligible to participate.
- Weather-based Irrigation System Rebate ($200): ensure that your landscape gets the water it needs by automatically adjusting the irrigation schedule to weather conditions. This supports enhanced plant health and appearance while reducing landscape runoff pollution that may eventually enter streams, rivers, or lakes. Replacing a standard clock timer with a WaterSense labeled irrigation controller can save an average home nearly 8,800 gallons of water annually.
- Free Irrigation Audits: available to Tumwater water customers with an irrigation account. As part of the program, a water utility representative or professional irrigation expert will visit your property and evaluate the efficiency of your irrigation system.
- Better-Than Code Program: If you are planning a new construction project or major remodel, you could be eligible for rebates for exceeding current plumbing codes.
