Frequently Asked Questions
Coolidge residents use an average of about 93 gallons per person per day. The whole city used about 1911.95-acre feet of water, or 623,211,000 gallons of water in 2020.
Although there is already a strong water conservation ethic in Coolidge, there is always more that can be done. This campaign, however, does not put all the responsibility on the residents of Coolidge. We will work with commercial water users, as well as schools and the city to make sure that everyone is doing their part to conserve and make sure that Every Drop Counts.
Arizona Water Company will have a booth at upcoming community events like the 2021 Coolidge GAIN night, and many more! Follow the EveryDropCounts page to get updates on when we will be in the community and stop by to talk to our dedicated staff at the booths! We promise to have fun giveaways!
Arizona Water Company owns and operates a recharge project it constructed in southeastern Coolidge where the Central Arizona Project (CAP) delivers Colorado River water to replace the water taken from the ground. This is something unique to Arizona Water Company’s Pinal Valley water system. In a recharge project, water is placed in a specific area and let it slowly percolate, or seep into, the ground. The purpose of a recharge project is to slowly replenish the groundwater aquifer replacing the water pulled out through pumping groundwater wells. This project is one of many ways that Arizona Water Company works to responsibly manage water in Coolidge and elsewhere in Pinal County so we can ensure there is ample water for years to come!
There are three sources of water being used in Coolidge: groundwater, CAP water and effluent. Arizona Water Company recharges its CAP water in its nearby recharge project and also offsets groundwater pumping at the Hohokom Irrigation and Drainage District (HIDD). After the CAP water is recharged, Arizona Water Company recovers it along with groundwater from production wells located in Coolidge. The City treats its waste water and reuses that water in nearby farms.
