What is "Urban Irrigation"

“Urban irrigation” refers to the direct delivery of non-potable (raw; untreated) Salt River Project (SRP) irrigation water to locations in urbanized areas. Urban irrigation from open or underground ditch systems for outside landscaping takes place in several locations in the Salt River Valley.

Urban irrigation is a remnant from an earlier era. The vast majority of water customers in the Valley and Glendale now receive potable (treated) water only from a municipal delivery system for both inside and outside use.

Still, many lots in the downtown Glendale area receive urban irrigation water today. The mature landscaping and vegetation in the older part of town gives this area a distinct feeling and character.

As properties were developed in other parts of town, developers and owners made individual decisions regarding whether or not they wished to have urban irrigation. Some preferred to have it while others did not. Many owners of lots that once had urban irrigation decided to discontinue it.

If you are interested in knowing more about urban irrigation, call the Water Services Department (623-930-4177).
