About Metro Water District
Metropolitan Domestic Water Improvement District is a municipal water provider with more than 20,000 connections, serving the water needs of more than 50,000 people and hundreds of businesses in northwest, northeast and southwest metropolitan Tucson. Ninety-five percent of Metro Water's customers are single-family residents. Formed in 1992, the District is the largest domestic water improvement district in Arizona and the only urban one.
Metro Water has a proactive conservation awareness program, which includes continual education about water conservation through our District newsletter. The District has a toilet rebate program and a graywater/water harvesting rebate program to promote lower water consumption. A xeriscaped demonstration garden is located at the District office complex. Conservation workshops are scheduled periodically for customers. The District has also distributed toilet leak detection kits, aerator retrofit kits, outdoor watering self audit materials and landscape watering advice. Since 1995, the District has taken a proactive stance by implementing a rate structure that includes a conservation component to encourage lower water consumption.
