For more information, visit www.waterenergysavings.com or call 1-800-933-9555.

City of Napa water customers and Napa Sanitation District sewer customers can take advantage of generous financial incentives to replace pre-1992 water-wasting toilets (3.5 or more gallons per flush) with today’s high-efficiency toilets, some of which use as little as 1 gallon per flush.  Visit www.cityofnapa.org/water or www.napasan.com for details on current programs, or call the City’s Water Conservation Representative at 257-9497.  Commercial customers may also obtain rebates for high-efficiency urinals and other water-saving equipment.
