Thank you for taking the time to complete this application and for your interest in water efficiency. Once the Region of Waterloo's Water Efficiency team has reviewed your application and registered your building(s) into the program, the next steps for receiving your funding will be as follows:

  1. As the property manager, you are responsible for the replacement of all toilets, showerheads and tap aerators in their building(s). Consultants or plumbers are often hired to install fixtures.
  2. Once the project is complete, the Region’s Water Efficiency team will review water billing data from the year before and the year after the project to determine water savings achieved. Please note: water billing data is made available to the Region the following year.
  3. With water savings calculated, we then look at invoiced costs and calculate a return on investment of a minimum of two years to determine how much funding you will receive.
  4. The Region’s Water Efficiency team will draft a proposal for your project. During this process they will request banking information and a completed application form as part of the submission package.
  5. The Region’s Water Efficiency team will then apply for approval of funding to the Region’s finance department.

Thank you for your interested in water conservation! Together we are making a difference!
