CAP is committed to planning for the future to fullfill it's vision to be a collaborative, innovative leader in the management and the delivery of water to Central Arizona.

Recovery Planning - Since its inception in 1996, the Arizona Water Banking Authority (AWBA), in partnership with CAWCD, has stored excess CAP water within Arizona. The primary purpose for this storage has been to meet AWBA's firming obligations and to comply with the terms of an interstate storage agreement between AWBA and the Southern Nevada Water Authority. This water has been stored in underground storage and groundwater savings facilities throughout the CAP service area. By statute and agreement, CAWCD is responsible for recovery of the stored water to satisfy interstate storage agreements and to supplement CAP M&I subcontracts when there is a shortage in Colorado River water supplies.

Lands Department - Water delivery is CAP's primary mission, therefore all proposed uses of CAP land (utility crossings, roadways, communication sites, etc.) are evaluated to determine the overall effect on the CAP.  Requests for land use, either from the public or private sector, requires that a land use application be submitted for review before CAP can grant a license permitting access and/or use.  In its land use decisions, CAWCD must abide by the agreements it has with the United States.  Learn more...
