Description and Service Details
Description (Service) High Efficiency Toilet Rebate Program: 
* $75 rebate for purchase of Water Sense certified toilets, installed in Halton Region - limited to one rebate per household 
* check website for details 
 
Outdoor water use: 
* during the summer months residential water use increases with the added demands of lawn watering, filling and maintaining swimming pools and car washing 
* this seasonal increase is known as Peak Summer Demand 
* when indicators show that the water system is stressed the Region will issue a change in outdoor water use restriction level 
 
Tips for wise outdoor water use include: 
* water lawns only once a week, early in the morning between 6 am-10 am to minimize water lost to evaporation 
* avoid watering lawns during or after rainfall 
* if you have an automatic irrigation system, ensure it is designed, installed and maintained to avoid over-watering or coming on in the rain 
* sweep driveways rather than wash them 
* shut off water while soaping up cars then turn it on again to rinse 
 
* for more information on conserving water outside and inside the home, and current status of an outdoor watering ban or water restrictions, visit website.
