Residential Water Conservation Program

Residential Water Conservation Program
The City of Middleton Water Utility is offering rebates of up to $100 for residential customers (includes owners or renters of single-family and duplex homes) who replace old or inefficient toilets with EPA WaterSense-rated High Efficiency Toilet (HET) models. The program is part of the Middleton Sustainable City Plan.


  • Participants in the program must be residential (single-family or duplex) customers of the City of Middleton Water Utility.
  • This program is limited to one rebate per household per year.
  • Eligible replacement toilets must be HETs listed on the EPA WaterSense website and must be compliant with the City of Middleton Plumbing Code and the City of Middleton Cross Connection Ordinance.
  • Replacement toilets should be 1.28 GPF or less. Or, if a dual flush toilet is used, it must be 1.1 GPF / 1.6 GPF.
  • Rebates are for replacement of existing larger-capacity toilets, and are not for new construction.
  • Rebates are first-come, first-served, until funding is exhausted annually.

To apply for the rebate, you must submit the following two items:
  • The original, dated sales receipt for the toilet showing purchase price of the toilet and the manufacturer’s model name and number. Receipts are valid for 60 days after purchase date. (You should keep a photocopy of your receipt as the receipt will not be returned).
  • A completed application form.

These items may be mailed or delivered to the following address:
Middleton Water Utility
Middleton City Hall
7426 Hubbard Avenue
Middleton, WI 53562

Owners may install the toilets themselves, or they may hire a plumber or contractor to do the job. Owners are responsible for proper installation and associated costs. Installation may be subject to verification by City building inspection personnel. Toilets may be purchased at any supplier as long as they are on the WaterSense list of HETs.


Rebate checks of up to $100 (not to exceed actual purchase price) will be sent to the customer’s address after the applications are processed. Please allow six to eight weeks. Rebates are not available for the costs of taxes or installation.

Disposal of Old Toilets

Replaced toilets should be disposed of so that they cannot be re-used. This can be done by contacting Pellitteri Waste Systems and scheduling a curbside pick-up of the old toilet. Fees apply.
