MWD Regional Recycled Water Program
The Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) and Central Arizona Water Conservation District have signed a letter of intent to pursue collaboration with the Metropolitan Water Conservation District (MWD) of Southern California’s Regional Recycled Water Project (RRWP). This project would purify and reuse wastewater and potentially offset the use of imported supplies such as Colorado River water.
The collaboration is an extension of cooperative efforts, including with the Southern Nevada Water Authority to explore and develop new projects and infrastructure to potentially augment the Colorado River. The RRWP is a unique opportunity to potentially improve the reliability of Colorado River water supplies to benefit Arizona, California and Nevada water users and create new flexibility and resiliency in the Colorado River system.
