ONCE

again, beginning October 1, 2010, the City of Tamarac will be offering rebates on ultra low flow (1.28 gallon /flush or lower) toilets to encourage a permanent reduction in indoor water use. To qualify for the rebate, you must: be a customer of the City of Tamarac water system; and live in a single family home. If you qualify, you can receive up to $100 towards the price of one ultra low flow (ULF) toilet and installation. The rebate for the second toilet is $75. Please note, the rebate can not exceed the cost of the fixture and/or installation (maximum of two toilets/rebates per household).

Other program restrictions include: • Rebates are not retroactive. Rebates will only be given for toilets installed after October 1, 2010; • The homeowner is responsible for fixture installation; • Homeowners will receive their rebate check in 3-4 weeks after receipt is accepted by the Utilities Department; • Homeowner agrees to a random inspection to assure installation of ULF toilet has taken place; • Participants must also agree to use only low flow showerheads (less than 2.5 gal/ min). These shower heads will be provided by the Utilities Department. • Building Permits are required for the installation of new toilets, but the fee will be waived for participants of this program. • Applications are available on the Utilities De-

partment page of the City’s website (www. tamarac.org/utilities). Incomplete applications will be rejected. For information, applications, and to assure funds are available for your rebate, please contact Bill Franqui, Water Conservation Specialist at (954) 597-3792 or billf@tamarac.org. Please note, funds are limited and are offered on a first come, first served basis.

WE

can help you reduce your outdoor water use and maintain a healthier landscape! Most landscapes are watered too often or for too long and are unhealthy as a result— that means you may be paying for extra water that your landscape doesn’t need. During your FREE check-up, our specialist can guide you through your sprinkler system operation and evaluate its water-use efficiency. You’ll learn how to find and repair minor broken or misaligned sprinkler heads, make scheduling adjustments to your controller, and increase your water-use efficiency outdoors with retrofit devices like a rain shut-off device. To schedule your free appointment, contact Bill Franqui, Water Conservation Specialist, at 954-597-3792 or billf@tamarac.org. Please note, appointments are limited, call today!
