NDEE Clarifies Private Well Reverse Osmosis Rebate Program Process

NDEE Clarifies Private Well Reverse Osmosis Rebate Program Process
January 28th, 2023 | Media Release

The Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy (NDEE) has received significant interest
and feedback in the Private Well Reverse Osmosis Rebate Program, which is available to private
well owners with drinking water test levels above 10 parts per million of nitrate. The department
would like to offer the following clarifications regarding the program’s requirements:
• Participation in the rebate program requires pre-approval from NDEE. The installation of
any reverse osmosis small water treatment system cannot begin until a rebate agreement
is signed between the private well owner and NDEE.
• The rebate application asks applicants to attach a copy of the well registration on Nebraska
Department of Natural Resources letterhead. Instead, a water well registration document
can be downloaded from the Department of Natural Resources website at this address:
More information on the Reverse Osmosis Rebate Program, along with the application forms and
an instructional video, can be found on NDEE’s website at http://dee.ne.gov/Publica.nsf/pages/22-
