An error in the off-peak golf course fees has been amended and posted to read “million gallons” in lieu of “thousand gallons”.

 

The water management benefit to identifying and adding the category, “Recovered Reclaimed Water”, is that the City’s rate structure will comply with the 1980 Ground Water Management Act, and bring the City more in line with other Arizona municipalities.  Water sources are classified by (1) type, and/or (2) quality.  Recognizing water sources enables municipalities to track and indentify them, enabling accounting of the water stored underground, satisfying the water adequacy requirement for development.
