Abstract:
In May, 1979, the City of Tucson entered into contractual agreements with three private water companies to ensure 100 year adequacy and to manage scarce water resources within a large area northwest of Tucson. These agreements implemented the Northwest Area Water Plan. The Northwest Area Water Plan provides a mechanism by which local and imported water sources can be cooperatively managed by the City of Tucson and local private water companies within the Northwest Water Service Area. This plan has been developed to complement agreements for water service between the City of Tucson and private water companies and is an integral part of those agreements. The purpose of this plan is to identify those facilities and associated costs which provide, on a regional basis, a permanent, cost-effective water supply to new customers within the Northwest Water Service Area. The basic plan approach is to utilize existing local groundwater to the fullest extent possible while maintaining local water tables at their present levels. This will be accomplished through the planning, design, and construction of an import water supply system to meet the base demands of customers within the Northwest Water Service Area and the conjunctive management of local well capacity and storage reservoirs to meet the variable peak demands and fire flow requirements.
