Stay up-to-date with the latest Arizona Water News
This website section provides updated information on the water challenges in the Southwest and Arizona. The site will have water news, water resources, and the history of water. Arizona is a dry state and has been more efficient with water over the past 100 years than probably any other US State. Credit a good portion of this work to SRP. Arizona also passed the 1980 Groundwater Management Act – one of the most stringent groundwater codes in the Country. The initial work on the Central Arizona Project (CAP) that brings water into AZ from the Colorado River was started in 1973 and essentially completed in 1993. The canal system is 336 miles and extends from Lake Havasu thru Phoenix and into Tucson. Because of the drought in the western US, water levels in Lake Powell and Lake Mead have dropped to critical elevations, and reductions on Arizona’s portion of the Colorado River via the CAP have been imposed. The US Dept. of Interior is about to impose further water restrictions on Colorado River water use in many States.
