Abstract: Arizona cities must reduce water consumption as a result of the 1980 Arizona Ground Water Management Act. Use of reclaimed water in place of potable water for landscape irrigation and artificial lake make-up water reduces a municipality's per capita water consumption rate since reclaimed water use is not included in the overall city per capita consumption rate calculations. The City plans to use artificial recharge and recovery of its excess treated waste water to accomplish two goals: (1) balance out seasonal demands for nonpotable irrigation water and (2) eventually recover the excess stored water for potable purposes.
