Welcome to CAGRD
In 1993, the Arizona State legislature created a groundwater replenishment authority to be operated by the Central Arizona Water Conservation District (CAWCD) throughout its three-county service area. This replenishment authority of CAWCD is commonly referred to as the Central Arizona Groundwater Replenishment District (CAGRD). In 1999, the legislature expanded CAWCD's replenishment authorities and responsibilities by passing the Water Sufficiency and Availability Act. The purpose of the CAGRD is to provide a mechanism for landowners and water providers to demonstrate an assured water supply under the new Assured Water Supply Rules ("AWS Rules") which became effective in 1995.
THE CAGRD FEE PAYMENT NOTICE APPLICATION AND PROCESS IS CHANGING
Effective Jan 1, 2015, CAGRD will only accept the new Fee Payment Notice application(s) please discard all old versions.
Due to legislative changes earlier this year, there will be two options for paying the ACTIVATION FEE (the Replenishment Reserve Fee is unchanged):
- Pay the full amount. This application and process will be very similar to the current application and process.
Pay one-half upfront and the remaining half one year later. This payment option will have very stringent requirements and a longer processing timeframe (approximately 8 to 12 weeks).
The new applications will be available in the next couple of weeks. Please check our website periodically for updates.
