Denver Water’s residential rebates program is changing in 2018, with some rebate amounts dropping starting April 1, 2018. See the changes below.
Get rid of that old water-wasting device and replace it with something new. Every bathroom reading chair you replace with a slick WaterSense model and every errant sprinkler head you replace with a straight-shooting rotary nozzle is one step closer to making Colorado a better place for us all.
We want to help you improve your property — and save water — by picking up part of the tab for a higher-efficiency model. Rebates are available to customers who receive a water bill from Denver Water or one of these qualifying water providers.
Thanks for outfitting your property with water-savvy devices.
