CAWCD Board in session

The Central Arizona Water Conservation District Board (CAWCD) met Thursday, Feb. 1 at CAP Headquarters. President Terry Goddard kicked off the meeting with a reminder that the April 4 Board meeting will be held in Pinal County in Florence, Ariz.

CAP Assistant General Manager Patrick Dent and Planning Analyst Nolie Templeton, PhD, provided an overview of Post-2026 guidelines planning, as well as a comprehensive analysis of the hydrologic models used to project future water conditions in the Colorado River Basin. The goal is to help Board Members as they make future policy decisions regarding CAP’s role in future Colorado River Basin issues. To hear the discussion, tune into the video here, which will be posted later this week.

The Board additionally heard a presentation on current Colorado River conditions.

On Consent Agenda, the Board approved:

The CAWCD Board of Directors is a popularly elected, 15-member board. Ten members are from Maricopa County, four from Pima County and one from Pinal County. Members serve six-year, unpaid terms. The board typically meets publicly the first Thursday of each month to establish policy and set rates and taxes for CAP. Meetings are open to the public – in person and via livestream.
