Second Modification


On January 9, 2008, the Director issued orders promulgating proposed modifications to the Third Management Plans for the purpose of adding a Modified Non-Per Capita Conservation Program. Public hearings on the proposed modifications were held in Phoenix, Casa Grande, Prescott, Nogales and Tucson during the first week of March, 2008. On April 1, 2008, the Director issued a summary of the hearings and findings with respect to the matters considered during the hearings (“Summary of Hearings and Findings”).

The Modified Non-Per Capita Conservation Program (MNPCCP) 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. The MNPCCP became effective in May 2008 and is described in the Second Modification of the Third Management Plan.
