Water Management

Modified Non-Per Capita Conservation Program

The Modified Non-Per Capita Conservation Program (MNPCCP) is one of the regulatory programs for large municipal water providers in Active Management Areas. It is a performance-based program that requires participating providers to implement water conservation measures that result in water use efficiency in their service areas. All large municipal providers (cities, towns and private water companies serving more than 250 acre-feet per year) that do not have a Designation of Assured Water Supply (DAWS) and that are not regulated as a large untreated water provider or an institutional provider are required to participate.

MNPCCP Advisory Committee

The Department established a Municipal BMP Advisory Committee to assist in the evaluation of the effectiveness of the program. The composition of the committee is based on stakeholder recommendations to include a mix of policy staff and conservation practitioners and:

  • at least one representative  from each AMA and each tier,
  • several representatives of private water companies,
  • at least one representative from a designated city and a non-designated city,
  • a representative in the existing NPCCP,
  • someone who can represent agriculture, and
  • a representative from the Arizona Corporation Commission.

The committee has met several times since the first meeting in October 2008 and has provided input on the guidance document, forms, educational workshops and materials. The committee continues to meet as necessary. Current committee members are listed in the table below.
