If you have an old toilet you could be unknowingly wasting water! Since 1994, Federal Plumbing Standards have required low-flush toilets with maximum flush volumes of 1.6 GPF.
As of January 1, 2016, all toilets sold and installed within the State of California must be high-efficiency toilets, flushing at a maximum volume of 1.28 GPF.
Unfortunately, because toilets have an average life expectancy of 30 to 40 years, many high-flush toilets are still in use. Fortunately, the Department of Water and Power (DWP) is proud to offer a toilet rebate program that encourages our customers to change out high-flush toilets, resulting in thousands of gallons of water saved.
How the Toilet Rebate Program Works
You must be an authorized City of Big Bear Lake DWP account holder to qualify.
Up to $50.00 Rebate: Replace toilet using 1.6GPF (Gallons Per Flush) with one using ≤1.28GPF.
Up to $100.00 Rebate: Replace toilet using >1.6GPF with one using ≤1.28GPF.
Before Toilet(s) are Removed:
Submit front-view of existing toilet and surrounding bathroom as proof of location.
Submit photos of MAKE, MODEL and YEAR OF PRODUCTION. MUST BE CLEARLY LEGIBLE. This information can be found stamped by the manufacturer inside of the toilet's tank.
Submit photo of the GPF rate found stamped by the manufacturer on the inside or outside of the toilet's tank.
Once Toilet(s) are Replaced:
Submit front-view photos of the new toilet(s) in the same location as replaced toilet for verification of installation.
Submit a photo or copy of the receipt/invoice paid in full. Invoices must be itemized.
Email all photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos must be of high enough quality so as to be legible and discernible.

*Rebates are given as a credit on your water bill. If there is a tenant, we can issue the rebate as a check to the homeowner upon request.
*A dual flush toilet is considered based on its effective flush volume. For example, a dual flush toilet that offers 1.6 GPF and 1.1 GPF, would be considered a 1.28 GPF toilet and would not qualify for a rebate.
