The topic of water often begins with rain. Arizona’s three distinct geographic regions have dramatically different rainfall: average annual rainfall ranges from 3 inches in Yuma to over 36 inches in the higher elevations along the Mogollon Rim and in the White Mountains. At 113,909 square miles, Arizona is the sixth largest state in the union, and despite its relatively dry nature, it contains 28 major rivers. Many of these rivers are dry channels that flow only when it rains. Arizona was the first state to recognize wastewater as a separate, growing source of water. As the only source of water that grows with the population, the use of recycled water will likely become prevalent in the decades to come. Other methods to achieve water conservation include rebate programs to replace old, wasteful appliances and sprinkler systems with newer, more efficient models. School educational programs are helping to ensure future generations are mindful of the need to use water wisely. Today, Arizona uses about 8 million acre-feet, or 2.3 trillion gallons, of water each year. Approximately 75 percent of that water goes to agriculture, the rest to residents and industry.
