Prerequisite for program eligibility
Previous backwater valve programs offered by the City of Edmonton and EPCOR required a pre-approval prior to installation. If you received a pre-approval letter dated 2017 your request will be considered on a case-by-case basis to receive the 2018 subsidy amount. Please send the letter you received along with the additional information about your installation and we will follow-up with you regarding the subsidy.
Backwater valves installed without a pre-approval letter from the City of Edmonton or EPCOR are not eligible for a subsidy.
