Water Efficient Fixtures#

Toilet rules: only flush the three Ps, pee, poo and toilet paper

Water efficient toilets are better for the environment and your pocketbook, saving you money on your water and wastewater bill. Saving water improves our community's resilience to drought and other factors.

High efficiency fixtures, such as toilets and faucets, mean less water flows to the sewer. Adopting good disposal practices is key to minimizing blockages and other issues. Only flush the three Ps (pee, poo, and toilet paper) to ensure continued performance in your sewer line and the community's wastewater system.

If a utility makes a payment to you for your purchase or installation of water conservation equipment, the rebate may be considered (partially) taxable income by the IRS. If you receive rebate payments totaling $600 or more within one calendar year, and you are not organized as a corporation, Fort Collins Utilities will send you a 1099-MISC from in January or February of the following year. You may wish to consult a tax advisor if you plan to exceed $600 in rebates.
