Opinion: Arizona is facing a turning point on water (again), and the Drought Contingency Plan – imperfect as it is – will help us navigate a new reality.

By Joanna Allhands | Arizona Republic

Arizona doesn’t solve anything by joining the three-state Lower Basin Drought Contingency Plan (DCP).

Yet it may be as important to our future as the Groundwater Management Act of 1980.

I know. The two pieces of legislation couldn’t be more different.

The Groundwater Act was a long-term deal that has helped us conserve a precious and limited resource in the state’s most populated areas. It has been lauded as forward thinking. Groundbreaking.
