Monitoring Assistance Program Fees

Revised on: May 22, 2024 - 12:05 p.m.


ADEQ proposes amending A.A.C. Title 18, Chapter 4, Article 3 to adjust Monitoring Assistance Program (MAP) fees. Presently, the MAP is projected to reach insolvency by Fiscal Year 2026 at the earliest and 2027 at the latest, owing to both cost increases due to inflation of 78.77 percent since the program's most recent fee alteration in 2001 and the expected upcoming mandatory testing for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). This rulemaking will adjust the MAP fees to maintain ADEQ’s ability to implement this water quality program that protects human health and well-being. This rulemaking may also create a fee and regulatory structure to allow ADEQ to perform triggered increased monitoring, pursuant to A.R.S. § 49-360, as amended by House Bill (HB) 2628, effective 90 days after the legislature adjourns (i.e., sine die) | View HB (Laws 2024 Ch. 150 § 5) >
