The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) Rules state that all discharges of reclaimed water are prohibited. A discharge is defined as any volume of reclaimed water that, for any reason, leaves the site where its use is permitted. For example, if a private irrigation system pipe breaks and reclaimed water runs into the adjacent public street; this is a discharge.
Community-minded citizens are encouraged to report discharges. If you are a reclaimed water customer, failure to report a discharge from your property could result in the termination of your reclaimed water service. To make a report, answer each of the questions below and click on submit when you are finished. This will send a report to Tucson Water and we will notify ADEQ of the discharge.
We may contact you for additional information or a Cross Connection Control Specialist may visit your site to ensure that the problem has been corrected.
