"Protecting and enhancing Arizona's water supplies for current and future generations."

Community water systems are required to submit a System Water Plan update every five years. (ARS §45-342).
  • Systems with a Designation of Assured or Adequate Water Supply may skip Part 1: Water Supply Plan. Note: A Certification of Adequate Water Supply or a Water Adequacy Report for a specific subdivision is not a Designation. If you have applied for and ADWR has issued a Designation of Assured or Adequate Water Supply for your entire service area, you’ll be listed here. If you’re not listed as a Designated Provider, you must complete Part 1. For questions regarding Designation of Assured or Adequate Water Supply, call 602-771-8599.

  • Systems that are located in Active Management Areas and that are regulated under one of the programs for large municipal water providers (serve more than 250 acre-feet water per year) may skip the Conservation Plan section.

  • A system located in an AMA and regulated as a small provider may skip the Conservation Plan if it can demonstrate that it will be regulated as a large provider within the next five years. For instructions, see A.R.S. § 45-342 F.
