Collaborative West Salt River Valley Basin Study Initiated
A new study of the West Salt River Valley Basin will look at regional water supply and demand, taking into account climate change and population growth projections. The West Salt River Valley Basin is located in Maricopa County, Arizona, and includes the greater Phoenix metropolitan area. The study will include the development of strategies to address current and future imbalances in water supply and demand in the basin. A collaboration between the Bureau of Reclamation, the West Valley Central Arizona Project subcontractors, the Central Arizona Project and the Arizona Department of Water Resources, the study matches $860,000 in non-federal funding with $840,000 in federal funding.
