Buying a home is filled with complexity and paperwork. And if you’re purchasing within an area served by the Central Arizona Groundwater Replenishment District (CAGRD), you may have one more set of acronyms to figure out. 

CAGRD has made the process a little simpler via a new video and infographic that breaks down the players and processes.

New developments in Maricopa, Pima and Pinal counties must prove they have access to a 100-year water supply because, by law, they can’t rely solely on mined groundwater. If a development doesn’t have sufficient renewable water supply alternatives – and many don’t – it enrolls in CAGRD. In turn, CAGRD protects the state’s precious groundwater resources by replenishing the excess groundwater delivered to its members.

The process might seem complicated, but it’s actually relatively simple. Take a look at this quick video, which explains the process from the developer, home builder and home owner perspectives.
