Mohave County is continuing its fight against the Central Arizona Project decision to move forward with a $34 million purchase of farmland and the associated water rights in the Mohave Valley Irrigation and Drainage District.
At the end of January, the Mohave County Board of Supervisors fired off an eight-page letter to the drainage district’s board of directors in opposition to the sale. In response, the district has scheduled an executive meeting for Wednesday to consult with its legal counsel.
One of the contingencies of the sale is the passage of an amendment or revocation of a drainage district resolution that prevents water within its jurisdiction to leave Mohave County. Without the change the sale will fall through.
