Rinse Smart Program

Arizona Rinse Smart Program

The city of Surprise is proud to announce a new program for Surprise restaurants. The Arizona Rinse Smart program. It's a new water efficiency program for the restaurant industry. This program will focus on the replacement of high water use, low-pressure pre-rinse spray valves, with lower water use, high pressure valves.


Participation in this innovative program is simple and there is no cost to you. The city of Surprise and EPCOR Water will provide all registered participants with a pre-rinse nozzle. Installation of the nozzle will be completed by a licensed contractor. This means there is absolutely no cost to you or your business.

Over the next year, EPCOR Water and City of Surprise will track your water usage and provide you and Arizona Department of Water Resources with an estimate of water savings the nozzle has provided. ADWR will use the water savings for their records to assist with conservation efforts across the state.

If you are interested in participating in the Arizona Rinse Smart, please contact the number listed below. For tracking purposes, you will need to provide your restaurant’s EPCOR Water and/or City of Surprise account number. We will schedule an installation time that is best for you.

If you have further questions about the program, please contact us:
