Abbotsford and Mission residents can take advantage of several rebate programs for upgrading toilets, washing machines, landscape and irrigation systems to be water efficient. Note that qualifying customers must receive water from the municipal water system.

*Residents living in the Clearbrook Waterworks District (CWWD) are not eligible for rebates.
