CITIZENS WATER ADVOCACY GROUP WATER ISSUES

CITIZENS WATER ADVOCACY GROUP LD1 WATER ISSUES CANDIDATE FORUM OCT. 8

Northern Arizona has big water problems that the current state Legislature has failed to address, and the need for action has never been more immediate. Will incoming legislators be up to the task of ensuring a secure water future? Will they work to develop a regional water conservation/incentive program to reduce rural groundwater pumping and use by private water systems? What are their ideas for a regional stormwater recovery and recharge program to reduce the overdraft?
