While the Globe City Council voted unanimously last week to decline its share of extra Central Arizona Project (CAP) water, it nonetheless plans to revisit the issue soon.

In his Nov. 29, 2018 letter to Globe Mayor Al Gameros, San Carlos Apache Tribal Chairman Terry Rambler said the Tribe plans to lease 5,925 acre-feet of its CAP water to the Town of Gilbert each year, for up to 100 years, at a price of $5,267.21 per acre-foot.

One acre-foot of water equals 325,851 gallons, or the amount of water needed to cover an acre of land a foot deep.
