The results of the 2012 Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study were striking—within the next 50 years, we may experience significant supply shortfalls in the Colorado River basin. Upon receiving the study results, Central Arizona Project (CAP) began to conduct a comprehensive assessment of what had already been done to address a potential shortfall. The results show that Arizona is well prepared—and that extends to the state’s agricultural community.

Children from Casa Grande to Florence will be participating in “Ag-Ventures” such as “Veggie Ventures” and “From Alfalfa to Ice Cream” thanks to a Central Arizona Project Community Investment Grant given to the Natural Resource Education Center (NREC).  The NREC’s mission is to nurture an awareness of natural and renewable resources and to teach farming, nutrition and water conservation techniques so these resources will be available to future generations.

Since 2000, the Colorado River basin has endured the worst drought in centuries, yet Colorado River water users in California, Nevada and Arizona have not had to reduce the volume of water they receive from the river.

Largely because our predecessors constructed a system of reservoirs (including Lake Mead and Lake Powell) that allow the Colorado River basin to store four times the amount of water it receives in a normal year.

As we settle into 2014, Central Arizona Project (CAP) takes an opportunity to reflect on the accomplishments of the past year, looking forward to what lies ahead in 2014. Today, CAP has released its 2013 Year in Review, which gives an easy-to-read, highly visual look at the past year. The review reflects upon all of the responsibilities of delivering secure and reliable water supplies to CAP customers—on time and on demand.
