know your water news


Central Arizona Project (CAP), as well as several U.S. partners including the Arizona Department of Water Resources, the Nature Conservancy, Environmental Defense Fund and other Colorado River basin states are being recognized by the Department of Interior (DOI) this week in Washington, D.C. DOI is recognizing the group with its Partners in Conservation Award in recognition of its cooperation and collaboration in completing and implementing Minute 319. This is the second year CAP has been recognized with the Partners in Conservation Award. In 2013, the DOI presented the award to CAP and its partners for the completion of the Colorado River Basin Water Supply and Demand Study.


Water education—for “students” of all ages—will get a boost in 2014 thanks to Central Arizona Project (CAP) grants announced last month. Through its Community Investment program, CAP—Arizona’s single largest resource for renewable water supplies—provides financial support for water and environmental educational organizations in Maricopa, Pima and Pinal counties. Nonprofits are eligible to receive up to $5,000 in grant money.


At this special time of year, Central Arizona Project (CAP) is grateful for the opportunity it has to supply precious water resources to the Arizona municipalities, farmers and Native American communities. We are also thankful for the positive collaboration we have with the federal, state and local governments and with stakeholders from the seven states that share Colorado River water. We look forward to providing sustainable water supplies into the new year and for many, many years to come.
