Central Arizona Project. You probably know it’s a canal system that brings water from the Colorado River at Lake Havasu, through Phoenix to south of Tucson. You may even know it serves Maricopa, Pinal and Pima counties. That’s a start – but there’s a lot more to know, especially now as Arizona heads into its first-ever declared shortage on the Colorado River for 2022.
If you’re interested in learning more about the impacts of this shortage, as well as how CAP works, where the water comes from, our history and future plans, CAP University may be for you!
CAP University is free and open to the public and the next virtual course is 9-11 a.m., Wednesday, September 29. This fast-paced event includes a high-level overview of the CAP system presented by Central Arizona Water Conservation District board members and the CAP management team, as well as plenty of time for you to ask questions.
- CAP 101
- The CAP system
- What you need to know about a Tier 1 Colorado River shortage
