You have the option to search for a water system by using the search feature and entering the CWS Number (91-), ADEQ Number (AZ...), or the water system name. Another option is to select the service area on the map, where a pop-up will open providing you with the details of that water system. Some of the information provided in the pop-up includes: owner name, address, phone number, CWS number, ADEQ number and population of the service area.
