Where Does Arizona Gets Its Water?

Where Does Arizona Gets Its Water?

As a Phoenix Scottsdale real estate agent, I get this question all the time both from my newcomer clients to our great state and my local clients as well.

Since we live in the desert with more than 350 days of sunshine per year, and hot temperatures, this is a good question to ask.

I don't mean to give you a technical dissertation about how this is done, but here's the short of it.

From Underground Water Storage Reservoirs. We have developed underground water recharge facilities to ensure a reliable and adequate water supply. Precipitation and run-offs from the mountains contribute to the storage of water.

The Canal System. The Colorado River serves as a viable supplement to the water system.

Water Rights from the Salt River watershed.

Conservation Programs to help reduce the water consumption.

In most areas of the county, when you purchase a home, you are assured of a 100-year water supply.
