Details to be released on CAP water pipeline plans

Posted: Updated:

More details on a proposed delivery system that would bring Central Arizona Project (CAP) water to the Upper Santa Cruz Valley will be released on Wednesday, October 29. American Nevada Company (ANC) and Farmer's Investment Company (FICO) will present a detailed proposal on building a pipeline.

Added ANC Senior Vice President Dan Naef, "The community has supported ANC, and we are committed to being part of a regional solution to one of the valley's most critical challenges." USC/PUG studies have confirmed a substantial overdraft of groundwater, and have identified a multi-phased solution that would bring renewable sources of water to the valley to balance groundwater use with renewable water.
