Water Conservation and Rebate Program

The Dedham-Westwood Water District is committed to encouraging customers to conserve water. To help achieve that goal, the following items are available to our customers at no charge. Just stop by our office at 50 Elm St to pick up:

Low flow showerhead and faucet aerators

Rain sensors for automatic lawn sprinkler systems

leak detection tablets(used to see if your toilet has a silent leak). Food coloring also works just as well. Put a few drops in the toilet tank. Wait 15 minutes without flushing toilet. If the dye color is visible in the bowl, there is a leak. Usually the culprit is the flapper which periodically needs replacement

RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMER REBATE PROGRAM $100 FOR QUALIFYING  CERTAIN MODELS OF  WASHING MACHINES

WASHING MACHINE REBATE QUESTIONS

  • WILL THERE BE A LIMIT TO THE NUMBER OF REBATES A HOUSEHOLD CAN RECEIVE?
    Yes. The District will grant one washing machine rebate per RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMER ACCOUNT.
  • WHAT KIND OF WASHER MUST I PURCHASE?

    The washing machine must be either a front loading model or a top loading model with a Water Factor of 4 or less. The Water Factor is an indicator of how effectively a particular machine uses water. The number is determined by testing and the EPA publishes the Water Factors for all machines on the EnergyStar Website.

  • WHAT PROOF OF PURCHASE IS REQUIRED?
    A copy of the store receipt and packing slip must be attached to the application. The make and model of the washing machine must be identified. The receipt must not be more than six months old when submitted to the DWWD or will be ineligible for rebate.

  • HOW WILL THE REBATE BE GRANTED?

    The DWWD customer will receive a check for the rebated amount. Please note that rebates will not be granted to customers whose water bills are in arrears or require a water meter changeout. Please be patient for the rebate check as we wait until several applications have been recieved before processing.
