Joint agreement to bring CAP water to southern Pima County

Posted: Updated:

Two companies with significant holdings in the Sahuarita area have announced that they will work jointly to develop a pipeline that would deliver Central Arizona Project (CAP) water to the Upper Santa Cruz Valley. Farmer's Investment Company (FICO) operates the Green Valley Pecan Company, while American Nevada Company (ANC) is the developer of the proposed Mission Peaks planned community west of Sahuarita.

Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry is pleased to see the joint effort by the two companies. "Pima County has consistently supported a regional approach to addressing the water concerns of the Upper Santa Cruz Valley," he said. "We've been impressed with the good work of the Upper Santa Cruz Providers and Users Group and the common efforts of it's members."
