What's the difference between private and public water in Arizona City?

Is private the only water available?

Is private water held to higher or lower cleanliness standards?

Private water means your own well water.

Public water means it is supplied by some agency, such as the city water company.

the whole concept doesn't make sense to me at least in title. Water doesn't restrict where it goes, it moves naturally. A city uses water ground water, that will take water away from nearby wells.

A more accurate term would be "no city water line"

I believe much of the city's water is drawn from the Colorado River and comes via canals. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Arizona city used to have its own aquafird. Can't spell that.
Now they use public water, that comes from CA I believe.

Aquifer.

Private doesn't mean just your own well. There ARE "private water companies" in Arizona. Such as, the "Arizona Water Company" in Arizona City. The private companies usually make the news when there is a contamination or supply problem. I don't recall hearing anything about that company specifically.

They are regulated through the Arizona Corporation Commission and, I presume, county health depts.
