Programs and rebates for conserving water

Our water conservation initiatives put us one step closer to achieving our Official Community Plan goal of environmental sustainability. We offer programs and rebates designed to help promote water conservation throughout the District.

Rebates for more efficient appliances, October 6-November 17, 2017

You can reduce the amount of energy and water your standard clothes washer uses by upgrading it to a new, energy-efficient model.

BC Hydro customers and District residents who purchase qualifying clothes washers between October 6 and November 17th are eligible for a $50 rebate from BC hydro, and an additional rebate of $50 from the District of North Van. You have 60 days from the date of purchase to apply and submit your proof of purchase.

Reduce your lawn sprinkling

During the warm summer months our water consumption nearly doubles thanks to outdoor water use. Help us conserve water during these high-use months by reducing the amount of lawn sprinkling you do and by following Metro Vancouver's lawn sprinkling regulations (in effect from June 1 to September 30).

A healthy lawn only needs one hour of sprinkling per week.
