The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) has low flush toilet rebates, smart control irrigation rebates and water leak rebates available to its residents. The CVRD's aim is to help residents be more efficient with water use and to reduce water consumption, which lowers demand for water and lessens wasted water. This, in turn, will keep future infrastructure costs down.
The CVRD is continuing to offer the popular low flush toilet rebate program for the replacement of toilets using 13 litres or more to flush, with the installation of a new high-efficiency (4.8 litre flush) or dual flush CSA (Canadian Standards Association) approved toilet.
Property owners are eligible for up to a $300 rebate on the purchase of a qualifying smart irrigation controller. The installation of smart control to an irrigation system helps residents use water more efficiently. These controllers provide irrigation only when required according to the weather and other environmental conditions, thereby reducing water use.
Billing adjustments are available for homeowners that experienced a water leak that has consumed an above average amount of water. Once the leak is located and repaired, the homeowner can complete a leak rebate application and submit it to the CVRD for review and calculation.
