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.
