In response to the Drought Contingency Plan (DCP), the state of Arizona, is promoting more pumping of groundwater. “Arizona gets nearly 40% of its water from the Colorado River,” reported by AZ Republic. As Arizona cuts back from the Colorado River, groundwater education and responsible replenishing is essential for long term conservation.
“‘Arizona has already seen effectively operating as if it were in Tier Zero for several years,’ said Sarah Porter, director of Arizona State University’s Kyl Center for Water Policy. That used to be ‘excess’ water, which Arizona banked and had other uses for. And now is being committed to Lake Mead,’ Porter said.”
In addition to water regulations put in place in the 1970s, the MaxWell has played a massive role in “banking” water.
Paul Orme, a lawyer representing four agricultural irrigation districts explained, “we are planning for a drier future,” anticipating that growers “will need to be as efficient as [they] possibily can, and will need to maximize and protect our groundwater resources to the greatest extent possible, and we couldn’t agree more.
