Water is a precious resource for desert dwellers in the Southwest. So Central Arizona Project (CAP) has developed a wealth of water-wise resources for teachers of all grade levels to help students understand the importance of water and learn ways to help preserve this natural resource.


For more than 30 years, CAP’s Board of Directors has been a collaborative partner in Arizona’s water community. The 15-member, publicly elected board has guided policies, making decisions that were momentous and shaped Arizona’s water future.


Editor’s Note: Brad Makrdichian is a heavy equipment operator, working from Mark Wilmer Pumping Plant near Lake Havasu to Burnt Mountain, approximately 93 miles away.


Within the most populous parts of central Arizona, groundwater management laws are designed to preserve this precious natural resource. This is especially important when it comes to new development. 


At CAP, summertime is outage time, which means our expert craftsmen are hard at work, performing preventive and corrective maintenance on CAP’s pumps and other assets.
