Requirement of Arizona's Departments of Water Resources (ADWR) and Real Estate (ADRE) that developers (subdividers) demonstrate that an assured or adequate water supply will be physically, legally, and continuously available for the next 100 years in new subdivisions. If the subdivision is located within one of ADWR's Active Management Areas (AMA), a public report will not be issued and lots may not be sold until an assured 100-year water supply is demonstrated. Outside of AMA's, developers are required to ask ADWR for an assessment of the availability of water. In these areas, lots may still be sold even if ADWR deems the water supply inadequate, as long as this information is disclosed to prospective buyers.

One of the two types of codes used to uniquely identify a land patent (the other type of ID code is serial number). An accession number directly relates a document image to the original hardcopy document. It identifies the state, volume number and page number of the original GLO document (valid only for the 13 eastern public domain states, with the exception of Iowa).The format of accession numbers is SSVVVV__.PPP where SS is state code, VVVV is the volume number, and PPP is the page number. For example, LA3010__.023 identifies the document on the 23rd page of volume 301 for Louisiana.See also Accession/Serial Number.
Administered by the Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR), the state's Active Management Areas (AMA's) were established to provide long-term management and conservation of limited groundwater supplies. The five (5) AMA's - Prescott, Phoenix, Pinal, Tucson, and Santa Cruz - cover the majority of Arizona's agricultural land and urban population centers that exist where groundwater supplies are extremely limited. Rules governing water use and land development in AMA's are generally more stringent and focused on conservation of water resources in than elsewhere in the state. Applications for new development and subdivisions are managed by ADWR's Office of Assured and Adequate Water Supply under the Assured Water Supply Program.
