Residential Smart Irrigation Controllers and Toilets
Weber Basin offers rebates to all residents living in Davis, Weber, Morgan and Summit counties. There are specific requirements for each rebate offered. Smart controller rebates are now a flat $75.00 for the purchase of a qualified smart controller or the full cost of a controller for purchases less than $75.00.
For toilets, if your home is older than 1994 you can qualify to receive rebate on up to two toilets with a flat rebate of $100.00 per toilet replaced. Newer homes do not qualify because toilets in those homes are already classified as “low flow”. The District offers these rebates through the Utah Waters Savers program.

Commercial Smart Irrigation Controllers
For commercial, institutional, multifamily and other large properties that have many more irrigation stations than residential lots or multiple sites that need irrigation control form a central controller, Weber Basin offers incentives for smart central control systems. These are usually much more sophisticated and expensive because of the capabilities they offer. To qualify for rebates, please call the District to ensure that funding is still available. The rebate for commercial controllers is 50% of the cost of the controller up to a maximum of $1,500 per controller.

Commerical, Institutional, and Multifamily Unit Toilets
If you are a facility manager and would like to replace old toilets on a larger scale for businesses, apartments, or other non-residential facilities, you may qualify for this rebate. The facility must be older than 1994 and you must call and be pre-approved prior to the project to ensure the project qualifies and that there are funds remailing for the program for the year. You may select any toilet as plumbing codes have changed and all new toilets are considered “low flow” or “water efficient”. Rebate in this category is $100.00 per toilet.
