Undersink system rebate ($200)
Starting January 2021, the City of Côte Saint-Luc will provide a one-time rebate of up to $200 towards the purchase and installation of an under-sink water filtration system to every single-family home and duplex built prior to 1976, which are the areas in which the city believes there are water service lines made of lead. The $200 one-time rebate on under-sink water filtration systems is also offered for systems installed in 2020.
The filter must be certified NSF/ANSI 53 or NSF/ANSI 58 for the removal of lead.
The City encourages residents eligible for the rebate to take advantage of it. The City will be continuing pneumatic excavations in 2021 to identify homes with water service lines made of lead, which is a step in the long-term replacement program. Until this infrastructure is replaced, countertop pitchers with water filters and water filtration systems provide the easiest way to mitigate the risks association with lead.
