WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita is handing out $1 million in financial rebates to encourage residents to conserve water.

Officials unveiled details Thursday of an appliance rebate program approved earlier this month by the City Council.

Appliances and devices must be purchased between May 1 and Dec. 21 of this year to be eligible. Rebates are on a first-come, first-served basis. The program ends when the $1 million budget is gone.

Water customers are eligible for up to a $100 rebate for qualifying low-flow toilets, high-efficiency dishwashers, high-efficiency washing machines and smart-irrigation controllers. A $75 rebate is also offered for rain barrels. Each household is limited to a maximum of five rebates.
