  • Reclaimed Water in Tucson

    Posted Under: Parks & Recreation in Tucson, Going Green in Tucson, Home Ownership in Tucson  |  April 25, 2014 3:26 PM  |  701 views  |  1 comment

    Tucson has three sources of water: groundwater, Colorado River water, and recycled water.

    Tucson Water uses some of its recycled water to produce reclaimed water, which is specially treated for applications such as irrigation, dust control, and industrial uses.

    Tucson Water has been producing and delivering reclaimed water since 1984. We deliver reclaimed water for irrigation to nearly 1,000 sites, including:

    • 18 golf courses
    • 50 parks
    • 65 schools (including the University of Arizona and Pima Community College)
    • more than 700 single family homes

    Recycled water is a second renewable water resource (Colorado River is the other). Producing and using reclaimed water for irrigation saves groundwater and Colorado River water for drinking. Tucson Water was one of the first water utilities in the nation to begin recycling water, treating it for irrigation and other non-drinking water uses. Experts from around the world visit Tucson Water to learn how we recycle water and to study our reclaimed water system.

    Reclaimed Water Facts in Tucson, AZ: 

  • Reclaimed water is not treated to be used for drinking or bathing.
  • Tucson Water uses some of its recycled water to produce reclaimed water, which is specially treated for applications such as irrigation, dust control, fire fighting, and industrial uses.
  • There are 160 miles of pipe in the reclaimed water system and 15 million gallons of surface storage in enclosed reservoirs.
  • During the summer, daily deliveries of reclaimed water can be more than 30 million gallons (MGD).
  • Using reclaimed water instead of drinking water for irrigation saves enough water every year for more than 60,000 families.
  • 50 parks and 65 schools, including the University of Arizona, irrigate with reclaimed water.
  • More than 700 single-family homes use reclaimed water for outdoor landscaping.
  • 18 golf courses, including four City-owned courses, irrigate with reclaimed water.
  • As an incentive to use reclaimed water, its rate is lower than most of the drinking water rates.
  • Converting from Tucson water’s drinking water system to reclaimed water can, for large volume commercial/industrial customers and some high water using residential customers, result in substantial savings on monthly water bills.
  • Reclaimed water rates do not cover the full cost of service for reclaimed water.

    Most Requested Information About Reclaimed Water

    What is reclaimed water?
    Recycled water is an important water resource today and for the future. Tucson Water uses some of its recycled water to produce reclaimed water, which is specially treated for applications such as irrigation, dust control, fire fighting, and industrial uses. Reclaimed water is excellent for the irrigation of turf, ornamental landscaping, food crops, orchards and vineyards. The nitrogen and phosphorus in the water provide fertilizer for plants and grass. Reclaimed water is not treated to be used for drinking or bathing.

    What if children or I come into contact with reclaimed water?

    Reclaimed water is not treated to be used for drinking or bathing. If you come into contact with reclaimed water, wash with soap and water from a drinking water faucet.

    Can my dog drink reclaimed water?

    Although we know that dogs sometimes drink out of puddles and other unsanitary places without apparent ill effects, Tucson Water recommends providing all household pets with drinking water from your drinking water faucets.

    What if my children or I have consumed reclaimed water?

    If you or your child have consumed reclaimed water, it is unlikely to cause ill effects. However, if you or your child should get sick after consuming this water, contact your medical provider and tell her/him that reclaimed water was ingested. She/he will be able to determine if the illness is related to the water.

    Can reclaimed water be used to water fruit trees and vegetable gardens?

    Reclaimed water can be used for the irrigation of food crops. Be sure to wash all produce prior to eating or cooking.

    What precautions should I take when working in gardens irrigated with reclaimed water?
    See Tucson Water document "Working in Gardens Irrigated with Reclaimed Water."

    Why don’t all of the local golf courses use reclaimed water?

    There are 39 golf courses in eastern Pima County. Tucson Water delivers reclaimed water to 18 of these courses and Oro Valley delivers reclaimed water to 5 golf courses in their service area. Although the governments of the City of Tucson and Pima County have policies and ordinances requiring new golf courses to irrigate with reclaimed water or other renewable supplies, there are several reasons why not all existing courses have converted to reclaimed water: 1) there is no reclaimed water service near the golf course and it is not cost-effective for either the City or the golf course to extend the reclaimed water system, or 2) existing courses, not served by a municipal or private water provider, are pumping groundwater under rights granted to them by the Arizona Department of Water Resources. The City of Tucson/Tucson Water has no legal authority to prohibit these right holders from pumping groundwater which they are able to do at a cost that is substantially less than the reclaimed water rate.rom potable water system revenues.
