Arizona Discussions on Drought Contingency Planning
The Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) and Central Arizona Water Conservation District (CAWCD) are committed to bringing the Drought Contingency Plan (DCP) to closure in Arizona by addressing a broad range of issues that respect the concerns of all stakeholders across the state. See joint May 3rd statement here.
To launch that dialogue, ADWR and CAWCD on June 28 hosted a public briefing on the Colorado River Drought Contingency Plan to address the reliability of the Colorado River System and the risks to Arizona’s Colorado River Supply. See joint June 28th statement here.
The discussions between ADWR and CAWCD are only the first step in a process that will expand to include participation by stakeholders.
