WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A program to provide incentives for some water-saving devices has passed with a vote of seven to zero.

Wichita has offered water conservation rebate programs since 2013 in an attempt to save water. These rebates come as water bill credits and since its conception, rebates totaling $1,654,007 have been approved. These water saving units have saved roughly 478 million gallons of water.

The 2024 program hopes to save water by offering incentives to people who install water-saving devices such as rain barrels, smart irrigation controllers, rain sensors, faucet/hose irrigation controllers, leak repair kits and dual flush conversion kits.

Customers are limited to five rebates per year.
