Toilet Rebate Program

Attention - Since January 1, 2019, the toilet rebate structure has been modified:

Only WaterSense labeled toilets using 1.1 gpf (gallons per flush) or less will be eligible for the $100.00 rebate.  A $50.00 rebate will be available for all other WaterSense labeled toilets greater than 1.1 gpf.

Forsyth County Water and Sewer Department customers may qualify for a rebate by replacing older, inefficient toilets.  To be eligible for the toilet rebate program, customers must apply for the rebate with the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District and meet certain qualifications.  Customers can apply online or download and print an application at https://northgeorgiawater.org/conserve-our-water/toilet-rebate-program/.   You can also call 404-463-8645 to receive an application by mail.  If a customer qualifies, the Forsyth County Water and Sewer Department will credit the customer's account with the rebate.

Eligibility Requirements to receive a toilet rebate:

  • Have an individual, residential account with the Forsyth County Water and Sewer Department and be up-to-date on billing payments
  • Own or rent a single-family residential home built in 1993 or earlier (this will be verified)
  • Purchase an approved toilet to replace an older toilet using 3.5 gpf (gallons per flush) or greater.  Only approved WaterSense labeled toilets using 1.28 gpf or less will qualify for a rebate
  • Agree to an installation verification visit to ensure your water efficient toilets have been installed

There is a limit of two (2) toilet rebates per property (including previous owners).  Rebates are limited and will be issued on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Only Forsyth County Water and Sewer Department customers are eligible.  Households on wells are not eligible for a rebate.  Applicants meeting all requirements can expect notification via letter or email from the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District within 30 days.  After notification, the rebate should appear within two (2) billing cycles.  The rebate can only be used towards the purchase price of the toilet (tank and bowl), and does not pay for Georgia sales tax, additional installation parts, or installation.  Rebates are limited and will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
