In order to help reduce the City’s chloride levels in the wastewater, the City is offering a financial incentive to residents willing to remove their salt-based (sodium chloride or potassium chloride), self-regenerating water softeners or to first-time purchasers of non-salt-based devices. (Printable Program Brochure)
Applicants are only eligible for one incentive or the other; but not both. See below for the incentive options:
Sodium and potassium salt-based water softeners are eligible for this incentive, which is paid out per unit to the applicant, and the City will directly reimburse prequalified plumbers for the removal of the unit(s). It is not required to replace a water softener that is removed.
There is a $300 incentive available for the first-time purchase of a non-salt-based device (where no previous unit has been in-place).
Prior to removing your salt-based unit, you must submit an application and receive a Notice to Proceed from the City in order to qualify for the incentive. Only plumbers from the City’s prequalified plumbers list are approved to participate in this Program.
