ACE Monthly Task Force Meeting 07/09/2015

Join us for ACE's monthly Task Force meeting on July 9 (second Thursday due to the Independence Day holiday) as we hear about:

"Arizona's Water Shortage - Myths and Facts"


According to a May 1st ABC Channel 15 news report, Arizona could see a reduction in water delivery in 2016. Recent news from the Associated Press, reports from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation state that Lake Mead (a source of water for Arizona via the Colorado River) will fall below a trigger point in January 2017. The risk of water shortage from Lake Mead jumps to 75 percent in 2017. According to ASU Water Research Professor Ray Quay, Phoenix pulls about 40-percent from the Colorado River so if there's a shortage, the city will shift its resources. "Most municipalities have multiple water supplies available to them, particularly ground water and they would shift the use of those other water supplies to make up the reduction they're experiencing in the Colorado River rights," says Quay.

Arizona officials at ADWR are taking a wait-and-see approach to the projections posted by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. Scientist and conservationists will say, even though Arizona is sitting well with its water supply now, it's best to be prepared and still conserve.  

Guest Speakers invited/confirmed:

  • Thomas Buschatzke, Director, Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR)
  • Ted Cooke, Interim General Manager, Central Arizona Project
  • Brian Biesemeyer, Water Director, City of Scottsdale
  • Christa McJunkin, Principal Water Planning Analyst, Water Strategy, Salt River Project (SRP)

Hear project updates from Owners and Industry Representatives.  Network before and after the meeting.
