The Arizona Water Banking Authority (AWBA) has accrued over 3.8 million acre-feet of credits to provide firming for Arizona water users during shortages on the Colorado River. Planning for future recovery of AWBA credits involves collaboration between the AWBA, the Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR), the Central Arizona Project (CAP), and stakeholders. In coordination with the Recovery Planning Advisory Group, this interagency workgroup will release an update to the 2014 Joint Recovery Plan in early 2021.

The Kyl Center for Water Policy will be presenting the Arizona Water Blueprint: A Roadmap to Good Stewardship. This signature project is an innovative interactive map of the state’s water resources and infrastructure. Rich with data, the Blueprint is designed to foster holistic water resource thinking and informed water policy discussions to influence sound water stewardship in the state. Offering opportunities for both free exploration and guided tours, the Blueprint features detailed information about proposed augmentation projects and the water resilience of communities throughout the state.

Prior to becoming director in 2015, Porter clerked for federal appellate Judge William Canby and was a litigator for several law firms. She left her law career in 2006 to join Audubon Arizona because she wanted to contribute to a collaborative effort to address Arizona’s natural resource challenges.
Susan Craig drives projects on water resilience at the Kyl Center for Water Policy. Having worked for Arizona’s three primary state water agencies, the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, Arizona Department of Water Resources, and Water Infrastructure Finance Authority, she has extensive knowledge of the state’s water issues, policies, and players.
