Water is one of our most precious resources. Because it flows so easily from our appliances, we sometimes don’t appreciate its value. Even though water is the most abundant resource on earth and is essential for life, the quantities of fresh water are limited. Water tables are decreasing, and it’s becoming more difficult and costly to find and deliver fresh water.

We need to save water every way we can and conservation is the key in providing fresh water for the future. KU’s conservation plan assists you in conserving this valuable asset. We provide the following incentives to encourage the installation of water saving appliances. Incentives for each measure shall not exceed 50% of the purchase price, with a max rebate shown below.
