Marana Water was awarded a 2019 WateReuse Award for Excellence in the category of Community Water Champion for the Marana Water Reclamation Facility Recharge Project (MWRP) at the Annual WateReuse Symposium in San Diego, CA.  The Community Water Champion Award recognizes utilities and/or local government entities that ensure a safe, reliable, locally controlled water supply through the development of water recycling treatment facilities, infrastructure and/or other water reuse projects that demonstrate the value of water reuse to the community served by them.

The MWRP is a manifestation of Marana’s efforts to use treated effluent as a renewable water supply to meet current and future needs of the community.  As an added benefit, the MWRP has been master planned to be a future multi-benefit recreational park with wildlife habitat components and is a model project emphasizing the desert environment and the importance of water to sustain a growing and thriving community.
