Abstract:
This report contains the results of a one year study to apply the compartmented reservoir concept to water storage problems in Arizona. The range of selected projects was from a ten thousand cubic meter (8.1 af) reservoir for a water harvesting agrisystem at Black Mesa, to a 238 million cubic meter (200,000 af) flood control dam, Tat Momolikot Dam on the Papago Reservation, to supply water for irrigation. Other sites studied were the Santa Cruz River at Continental, to supply an industrial /domestic water, Leslie Creek site for recreation, and improvement of Mormon Lake for recreation. Evaporation from Tat Momolikot and Mormon Lake are presently consuming most of the available water. Through compartmentalization this evaporation can be significantly reduced. At the other potential dam sites on the Santa Cruz and Leslie Creek the use of a compartmented reservoir will make these otherwise marginal projects practical. The Black Mesa Agrisystem is presently demonstrating the utility of the compartmented reservoir system.
