Temporary Water Use

The Colorado River Basin continues to experience drought and the impacts of hotter and drier conditions. Based on the Jan. 1, 2022, projected level of Lake Mead, the U.S. Secretary of the Interior has declared the first-ever Tier 1 shortage for Colorado River operations. This Tier 1 shortage has resulted in a substantial cut to Arizona’s share of the Colorado River. Nearly all the reductions within Arizona have been borne by Central Arizona Project (CAP) water users, including CAP’s Temporary Water Program. Additional reductions will be required as part of the 1030′ Consultation and 500+ Plan.  Effective Dec. 31, 2021, CAP’s Temporary Water Program was terminated.
