What is the process?

Check Eligibility and Availability

Email [email protected] your address and existing plumbing fixture flow rates to see if your property is eligible for free plumbing fixtures and if funding is available.​

Work Request Filed

If eligible and if funding is available, County staff will file a work request with our contracted licensed plumber.

Schedule Appointment

The licensed plumber will contact the property owner to schedule an appointment for the plumbing retrofit.

Sign Certification Form

After the retrofit installation, the property owner will sign a form certifying the work was completed and the plumber will submit the paperwork to the County.
