Hydrology and Water Resources in Arizona and the Southwest
Abstract:
Arizona's Groundwater Management Act has changed the perspective that water providers must use when planning to meet growing water demands. The goal of safe-yield in the Active Management Areas and the requirements of both the Second Management Plan and the Assured Water Supply provisions will require all water providers to consider other options besides additional groundwater development when expanding their water supply plans. A simplified process will be presented that stresses the need for well thought-out, cost-effective water resource planning to meet management requirements for both public and private water providers. The process relies on an initial projection of water demand, an analysis of demand reduction potential, an examination of supply alternatives, and a discussion of the characteristics that must be considered when weighing the demand reduction and supply alternatives for implementation. Development of water supply plans that meet existing and future needs for growing service areas will be increasingly important to water providers in Arizona and throughout the and West.
