Arizona cities are under a state mandate to reduce water consumption as a result of the 1980 Arizona Groundwater Management Act. Since reclaimed water use is not included in the overall city per capita consumption rate calculations, use of reclaimed water in lieu of potable water for landscape irrigation and artificial lakes reduces a municipality's per capita water consumption rate. To reserve potable water supplies for uses requiring a higher water quality, the City of Mesa has made a commitment to maximize use of treated wastewater for nonpotable purposes.
