Arizona Rinse Smart Program

The Water Resources Department has also partnered with Arizona Department of Water Resources and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation through the Arizona Rinse Smart program to install high pressure, low water use pre-rinse spray valves in area restaurants and schools. At your own convenience please take the time to view the Rinse Smart Fact Sheet (PDF).

Pre-rinse spray valves are initially used by many food service establishments to remove food particles before plates and trays are placed within commercial dishwashers. The newer, more efficient spray valves use half as much water and clean more effectively than standard spray valves.
