To facilitate a coordinated response to drought events, the Operational Drought Plan identifies a process for communication and coordination between Arizona state agencies, Federal agencies, tribal governments, state lawmakers, water users, resource managers, and scientists.

This document seeks to provide guidance to water users within the State and will strive to develop the building blocks for a long term, statewide conservation strategy and in the short-term, a phased approach for implementation of the strategy. This effort will not attempt to develop a “one-size fits all” approach to water conservation. Over the long term, it will merely provide the basis for assisting communities all over the state to establish new programs, strengthen existing programs and provide guidelines for more efficient water use.

The State And Local Arizona Documents (SALAD) collection contains documents published by the State of Arizona, its Counties, incorporated Cities or Towns, or affiliated Councils of Government; documents produced under the auspices of a state or local agency, board, commission or department, including reports made to these units; and Salt River Project, a licensed municipality. ASU is a primary collector of state publications and makes a concerted effort to acquire and catalog most materials published by state and local governmental agencies.

The ASU Digital Repository provides access to digital SALAD publications, however the ASU Libraries’ non-digitized Arizona documents can be searched through the ASU Libraries Catalog and Library One Search. For additional assistance, Ask A Government Documents Librarian.

Publications issued by the Morrison Institute for Public Programs at Arizona State University are available in the ASU Digital Repository Morrison Institute for Public Policy - Publications Archive collection.
