This second webinar in the “Get Ready” series will focus on committees under the Governor’s Water Augmentation, Innovation, and Conservation Council. Philip Richards, Chair of the Desalination Committee, will discuss why desalination is being used as a possible solution for Arizona’s current water challenges and how it can help meet future water needs. In addition, committee Chair Wade Noble and Co-Chair Timothy Thomure will provide updates from the Long-Term Water Augmentation and Post-2025 AMAs Committees.

Changes in aquifer storage derived from microgravity and water level monitoring in the Tucson Active Management Area
Over the past 20 years, the Tucson Active Management Area has experienced fluctuations in aquifer storage. These changes are a result of recharging imported water and changing groundwater pumping regimes. The USGS uses microgravity to directly measure storage changes in space and time, while Tucson Water measures depth to water in its measurable production wells in an annual round-up. By examining the data from both agencies, it is possible to characterize changes in the regional aquifer and monitor interesting trends in specific geographic areas.
