Salt Reduction Rebates -- Commercial/Industrial Facilities 

These rebates are intended for commercial, industrial, or multi-unit residential facilities and water treatment companies working with them to implement projects that reduce salt or chloride in their facilities by at least 100 pounds of salt per month on average. Several local businesses have taken advantage of these rebates to reduce their salt use, including a few featured in these case studies.
