The City of Greeley's Water Conservation Program offers free indoor audits to water customers in Greeley. This program is designed for homes built before 1994 to recommend changes to help save money and water.
The auditor will examine all water use in the home. This includes leaks, high use appliances and fixtures, and other unintended uses of water. Participants will then receive a letter suggesting repairs, upgrades, and other ways to save water. A rebate is also available to replace inefficient toilets and clothes washers.
This is a good time of year to make changes to indoor water use. Year-round sewer rates are tied to winter water use in Greeley. The sewer bill for residential accounts is determined by averaging water use in January and February. The winter months are when the measuring takes place because that is when the highest percentage of water used is returned to the sewer system. If customers make water conservation changes this fall, they will save money on their 2012 sewer bills.
Free indoor audits are also available to all commercial, industrial, multi-family and institutional properties in Greeley. The commercial audit finds areas of water inefficiency and develops targets for improvement. Once problem areas are located, Greeley's Conservation Program will help businesses implement improvements by offering technical support and rebates.
