Time running out for water conservation incentives

Hernando County, Florida-- The Hernando County Utilities Department has announced that time is running short for customers to take advantage of two water conservation incentive programs - the Rain Sensor Installation Program and the Low Flow Toilet Replacement Program.

The Rain Sensor Installation Program promotes residential outdoor water conservation by offering a $50 water bill credit for customers who have a rain sensor installed to their irrigation system.

Requirements for participants are as follows:

  • Must be a Hernando County Utilities Department water or water/sewer customer who irrigate with county supplied water
  • The home and the irrigation system must be older than 2001
  • The new rain sensor must be installed by one of the participating irrigation contractors

Call the Utilities Department to see if you qualify and to get the list of participating irrigation contractors.

In an effort to further promote water conservation in Hernando County homes, HCUD is offering a $100 water bill credit for replacing older toilets (high gallon per flush) with new water efficient toilets (1.6 gallon per flush).

Requirements for participants are as follows:

  • Must be Hernando County Utilities Department water or water/sewer customers
  • The home must be older than 1994
  • The new water efficient toilet must be installed by one of the participating plumbing contractors

Call the Utilities Department to see if you qualify and to get a list of participating plumbing contractors.

Both programs will end September 15, 2012. That gives you just 8 more days to take advantage of this opportunity!
