Water Filter Rebate Program

The City of Bowie is happy to offer a Bowie Water Filter Rebate Program for the residents served by the City’s water system. In an effort to address the discoloration problem, the city will provide a $50 rebate to any resident served by the City of Bowie’s water system who provides receipts for a house water filter purchased and installed beginning July 1, 2021.

What is the Water Filter Rebate Program?

The program offers a $50 rebate for the purchase and installation of any one house water filter. The house filter must be installed on a residential property served by the City of Bowie’s water system. An image of the receipt of purchase, a picture showing the water filter installed within the privately owned plumbing inside the home, and a picture displaying your home address are required and can be submitted via the disclaimer form (below).

**Please note: If the value of the purchased water filter is less than $50, the rebate will be for the amount of the water filter, not including sales tax.**

Who is eligible for a water filter rebate?

Only residences served by the City of Bowie’s water system are eligible to apply for a rebate. Each residential home is eligible to receive only one filter rebate.
