Active Rulemaking

Advanced Water Purification (previously DPR)


ADEQ is in the process of revising the Arizona Administrative Code (A.A.C.) to allow for expansion of potable reuse for facilities subject to the Safe Drinking Water Act and for pilot, demonstration, or educational facilities. Expanding potable reuse will improve the sustainability of Arizona’s water supplies.

While potable reuse, direct and indirect, is currently allowed under ADEQ’s rules in A.A.C. Title 18, Chapter 9, Article 7, additional regulatory specificity is needed to ease water suppliers’ ability to engage in potable reuse. ADEQ will rely heavily on stakeholder involvement and expertise during this process.
