Residential Toilet Rebate Program
The Clayton County Water Authority is taking part in a regional Residential Toilet Rebate Program administered by the Metro North Georgia Water Planning District (The District). This incentive program encourages customers to replace older, inefficient toilets and install ultra low-flush toilets (ULFT) or high efficiency toilets (HET).
Eligible customers will receive a $50 rebate for installing an eligible ultra low flush toilet (1.6 gallons per flush) and a $100 rebate for installing an eligible WaterSense high efficiency toilet (1.28 gallons per flush). Customers can receive up to two (2) toilet rebates per household.
The Metro North Georgia Water Planning District is administering this new program. For more information, the list of eligible toilets or an application, visit The District's web site, or call 404.463.8645.
Who is Eligible for the rebate program?
CCWA customers who own or rent a single-family residential home that was built in 1993 or earlier and have older, water-wasting toilets (3.5 - eight gallons per flush) will be eligible for the program.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I email the application to The District?
No. They must have an original signed application for the program files.
Are homebuilders eligible?
No, only homes built in 1993 or earlier are eligible.
Can multi-family residents apply?
Currently, there is not a program for multi-family complex managers and owners. However, depending on the demand by water providers, this program may be implemented at a later date.
I live in a condo/townhome. I do not pay a water bill to a utility, I pay my condo association. Can I participate in the regional rebate program?
Unfortunately, master metered condo and townhome associations are considered commercial accounts. Right now the program is only open to individual residential accounts.
How much water is saved by changing my toilet?
The amount of water savings depends on what type of toilet you are replacing, the number of persons in the household, and how often you use the fixture. Typical pre-1980 toilets use 8.0 to 5.0 gpf. Installing a more efficient toilet will save between 6.72 to 3.4 gpf. Typical homes built between 1981 and 1993 use 4.5 to 3.5 gpf. If a family of three (3) replaces a 3.5 gpf toilet with a 1.28 gpf toilet and each person uses the toilet five (5) times a day, this family could save about 33 gallons a day and/or 990 gallons per month.
