East Valley cities face several challenges as they prepare for continued growth in coming decades.
Planners in Mesa, Tempe, Chandler and Gilbert all say they have developed robust and diverse water portfolios.
Eric Braun, Gilbert’s water resources manager, said Gilbert has complied with state law proving the town can meet estimated demand for the next 100 years. But he said, “As Gilbert continues to grow, water supply will always be a consideration for balancing growth and cost of service.”
