    RWRD Banner

    Our mission is to protect the public health, safety, and the environment by providing quality service, environmental stewardship, and renewable resources. We design, manage and maintain over 3,500 miles of the sanitary sewer (conveyance) system and two metropolitan and six sub-regional water reclamation facilities.

    We are doing our part to protect the environment by recycling our most precious resource, water. Pima County uses its highly treated recycled, or reclaimed water, in a myriad of ways including irrigation of County parks, golf courses and ball fields.

    Utilizing reclaimed water for irrigation is a highly sustainable activity that saves groundwater and Colorado River water for drinking. Reclaimed water is also used to sustain and improve aquatic and wildlife habitats, for dust control and for long-term storage in our underground aquifers. Experts from around the world visit Pima County to study the regional reclaimed water system, which demonstrates effective water recycling techniques in the desert.
