Oro Valley Water

In the desert Southwest water is always a topic of conversation, particularly as it relates to growth and expansion. For those people living or looking to live within the Oro Valley Water Utility service area, the Town has quite a bit of information on its website to answer questions and concerns. Each year the Oro Valley Water Commission, which is tasked with advising the Town Council, publishes an annual report (download the April 2013 report here). Currently Oro Valley Water Utility has 18,716 customer connections which includes not only those within the Oro Valley town limits, but also the Countryside communities which it services located north of Cortaro Farms by Camino De Oeste.

Water quality is also another area of concern for many people and Oro Valley has a great track record, having gone the last eleven years consecutively without a water quality violation. During 2012 there were 2,250 tests performed to ensure the water quality complied with federal and state standards. Oro Valley delivers water from three sources; groundwater from aquifers below the Town, Central Arizona Project (CAP) water, and finally reclaimed water used for turf irrigation at area golf courses. Groundwater levels have continued to decline but the amount of reduction has lessened since the CAP and reclaimed water programs were put into place.

Anyone with a real interest in learning about water for the Oro Valley area should absolutely read the Annual Report linked above. For more information visit the Town of Oro Valley Watere Utility’s website.
