Pullman Conserves

Water Conservation Incentive Programs

Conservation LogoApply for any of the water conservation rebates or credits offered by submitting a completed Water Conservation Rebate Application to the City of Pullman Finance Department. The application includes instructions and specific details on the requirements of each of the rebate and credit opportunities. Submitting the application before any work is done is required. All rebates offered require a pre-inspection as part of the approval process.
Toilet Rebates
The City’s toilet rebate program launched in 2008. Since that time Pullman property owners have replaced over 2000 toilets resulting in an estimated annual water savings of 8.4 million gallons of water per year. In 2015 the City’s toilet rebate program was expanded to include five different types of toilet rebates including a rebate for new construction.

In an effort to encourage water conservation, the City of Pullman offers rebates to water customers that replace old, higher flow toilets, in favor of new low flow versions. Rebates of up to $125 are available!
Typically, toilets made before 1994 use 5 to 7 gallons per flush. Today there are many low flow options such as an Ultra Low Flush Toilet (1.6 gallons per flush) or a High Efficiency Toilet (1.28 gallons per flush, or less). Switching over one toilet can save as much as 10,000 gallons per year, and through our Toilet Rebate Program it is economically advantageous to switch. To qualify for the rebate, an applicant must be the owner of a residential or commercial property served by the City of Pullman Water System and be replacing your existing pre-code toilet with either a new Ultra Low Flush or a High Efficiency toilet. In order to receive the rebate, applicants must first complete a Water Conservation Rebate Application. Once the application is processed one of our Operations Technicians will perform an onsite inspection of your existing toilet in order for your application to be approved. Once the new lower flow toilet is installed, a second inspection will take place, followed by your rebate being processed and issued through our Finance Department.

The Water Conservation Rebate Application is available online, or can be obtained from the Public Works or Finance Departments in City Hall at 190 SE Crestview St, Bldg A, Pullman, WA 99163 For additional information please call (509) 338-3242.
Lawn Removal Credits
As the City of Pullman strives to continue meeting and exceeding conservation goals, a $150 credit is offered to any water system customer that removes at least 300 square feet of lawn in favor of drought resistant plantings. The process to claim the credit is simple. Begin by filling out our Water Conservation Rebate Application and a representative will contact you to perform an onsite inspection of your existing landscape, and to discuss your project. Following the initial inspection, simply complete the project and contact us at (509) 338-3242 for a final inspection. It is a great way to update your landscaping while saving both money and water.
Washing Machine Rebates
Owners of multifamily housing facilities with common area laundry facilities can receive a $200 rebate to replace existing non-efficient washing machines with newer Energy Star compliant washing machines. It is a great way to update your older non-efficient washing machine while saving both money and water.
