|Arizona Department of Water Resources||http://www.azwater.gov/azdwr/||Contact Information||
The Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) was created to secure long-term dependable water supplies for Arizona's communities. The Department administers and enforces Arizona’s groundwater code, and surface water rights laws (except those related to water quality); negotiates with external political entities to protect Arizona's Colorado River water supply; oversees the use of surface and groundwater resources under state jurisdiction; and represents Arizona in discussions of water rights with the federal government. In addition, the Department explores methods of augmenting water supplies to meet future demands, and develops policies that promote conservation and equitable distribution of water. The Department also inspects dams and participates in flood control planning to prevent property damage, personal injury, and loss of life. In support of these activities, ADWR collects and analyzes data on water levels and on water-quality characteristics. Other responsibilities include management of floodplains and non-federal dams to reduce loss of life and damage to property.
