WATER QUALITY REPORTS


WATER CONSERVATION TIPS:

Use the following water conservation tips to reduce your use and your water bill:

  • Did you know that you can place ice cubes on top of the soil in your potted plants to water them?
  • Store drinking water in your refrigerator rather than letting the water run till it cools down.
  • A layer of mulch in your landscaping will help reduce evaporation while promoting plant growth.
    Regular pruning of your landscaping helps your plants use water more efficiently which helps cut down on the amount of watering you’ll need to do.

NOTE:

Easements: Please clean your easements so that MDWID and your other utility companies have better access to the equipment that services your property. Under Arizona law it is the property owners responsibility to maintain the easements. Please remove trash and cut or trim the trees and brush

The District continues to pursue a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture – Rural Development to address some of our immediate concerns with the aging infrastructure within the District continues to be on hold. We have identified $2,300,000 of projects that will enhance the distribution system and give the District a more reliable system for the future.

The grant application is in the process of being submitted to Washington for funding following the mid November final approval of the Archaeological Monitoring and Discovery Plan by the State Historical Preservation Office and the local Indian tribes.
