Theodore Roosevelt Dam turned dry Arizona land into a land that could be farmed by controlling the erratic flow of the Salt River and collecting the water for irrigation. According to SRP’s website, it was the world’s largest “cyclopean-masonry” dam, a Greco-Roman style of building that uses huge, irregular blocks. (Photo by Daria Kadovik/Cronkite News)
Valley Partnership focuses on water and what you need to know
As 2019 begins, water uncertainty looms for the real estate development industry on three major topics:
• How will the Lower Basin Drought Contingency Plan help the Colorado River and Lake Mead?
• How will responsible development and the need for critical infrastructure investment take place in the Johnson Utilities service area with EPCOR as the interim water manager?
• And finally, what is the future of the CAGRD and how do tribal communities like the Gila River Indian Community help address our state’s water shortage?
Valley Partnership‘s January Friday Morning Breakfast brings together the key players in all of the state’s water discussions to map out how potential agreements on water will affect the development industry and what must be done to properly manage and deliver clean, reliable water to Arizonans now and into the future. The event takes place Friday, January 18 at Phoenix Country Club.
