The County’s Drought Response Plan and Water Wasting Ordinance (Chapter 8.70) established a four stage trigger category that corresponds to the Arizona Drought Monitor Report and their declaration of a watershed drought condition from “Abnormally Dry” to “Extreme.” Each “Stage” declaration within the county triggers drought stage reduction measures.
