Water Conservation Offers and Rebates

Since LOTT began offering Water Conservation Programs in 1997, wastewater flows have gone down significantly. On behalf of the LOTT Alliance and the Cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater, thank you for supporting LOTT's water conservation programs and for helping our community address our wastewater treatment and water supply challenges. If you have any questions about a specific offer, please contact our office at (360) 528-5719. The following offers and rebates apply to purchases/projects completed by the end of the calendar year.

Free Clothes Washers for Some PSE Customers

Puget Sound Energy is rounding up old, inefficient clothes washers that are in working condition, and replacing them with ENERGY STAR® qualified models – for free. And it gets better: PSE will even remove and recycle the old appliance when they deliver the new one. The new models are up to four times more efficient and can save customers $200 a year on their energy bill. Of course, they save water too!

To be eligible, customers must own the old appliance and have residential PSE electric service. The old washer must be:

  • Manufactured in 1997 or before and in working condition
  • Connected to an electric water heater and used with an electric dryer
  • Connected to a properly functioning water hose
  • Plugged into a properly grounded (3-prong) outlet

Customers can figure out the age of their appliance by checking inside the door or on the back for a label with the year it was manufactured, or by clicking here.

Those who are interested can learn if they qualify by calling (877) 341-2314, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information can be found on PSE's website.


WashWise Residential Washing Machine Rebates

Residential sewer customers are eligible for $50 rebates on resource-efficient washing machines, most of which are front-loading models. The purchase and installation of a WashWise resource-efficient washing machine can save the average household up to 8,000 gallons of water per year.

LOTT's list of qualifying washing machines is compiled by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE). CEE is a nonprofit public benefits corporation, which promotes the manufacture and purchase of resource-efficient products through incentive and promotional programs.

Toilet Rebate Program

LOTT is offering a rebate of $100 for the purchase and installation of a qualifying high-efficiency toilet. High-efficiency toilets (HETs) use an average of 20% less water than standard 1.6 gallon per flush toilets. Qualifying toilets must use 1.28 gallons or less per flush and have a MaP test score of 750 grams or greater. Eligible toilet models available from local retail stores are included on the toilet rebate list (click on left thumbnail above). Additional models that meet the above criteria may also be eligible. (Dual flush toilets are not eligible for the rebate unless the maximum flush is 1.28 gallons or less per flush.) To be eligible for the rebate, the toilet must be installed in a home or business that receives sewer service from one of the cities of Lacey, Olympia, or Tumwater.

Applications must be submitted within 6 months of purchase. Applications must include a completed and signed application form, a copy of your city water/sewer bill that shows your account number, and a copy of your purchase receipt that shows the store name, date of purchase, brand purchased, model or item number, purchase price, and proof of payment.


Multi-Family Toilet Program

LOTT is offering free high-efficiency toilets to property owners of multi-family complexes. To be eligible, the property must be served by LOTT sewer system and the toilets must be used to replace existing toilets that use 3.0 gallons or more per flush. Installation of the fixtures is the responsibility of the property owner. To apply for this program contact your utility representative:

      Lacey (360) 438-2687   •   Olympia (360) 753-8271   •   Tumwater (360) 754-4140


Free Residential Water Saving Kits

The Cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater distribute free Water Saving Kits to sewer customers. These kits, funded by LOTT, include showerheads, kitchen and bathroom faucet aerators, leak detection dye tablets, and installation instructions.


WaterSmart Technology Rebates

The WaterSmart Technology program offers rebates to industrial, commercial, and institutional customers who install water-saving technologies. LOTT also offers rebates on commercial coin-operated washing machines in laundromats and multi-family laundry rooms. WaterSmart Technology Rebates can equal up to 75% of installed project costs.
