Irrigation basic charge and fees

As a water rights land owner with SRP, you do not pay for water; it belongs to your land. The annual basic charge and fees help pay for water storage and for the construction, operation and maintenance of SRP facilities.

Irrigated land is also charged an annual water delivery fee, which pays the administrative cost of servicing an active irrigation account.

Many shareholders use more than their base allocation during an irrigation year. There is an additional charge for this over-base allocation water use.

Annual Fees

On March 26, 2019, the Board of Governors of the Salt River Valley Water Users' Association approved a new schedule of water charges, which will be effective during the 2020 calendar year.
