The City of Wichita’s water rebate program, now in its 5th year, begins on Monday.
The city is offering residents across Wichita cash rebates if they purchase devices—such as dishwashers and toilets—that conserve water. A low-flow toilet, for example, can earn a household up to $100 from the city. Other eligible items include rain barrels, irrigation controllers and clothes washers.
Don Henry, assistant director of public works and utilities, said Thursday that the rebate program helps the city conserve water in case of a drought down the road.
