Even as one of its main sources of water drops into uncertainty and climate change alters Arizona’s water landscape, the long-term future of Glendale’s water supply is on sure footing, Glendale water officials say.
“Because of Glendale’s diverse portfolio, we’re sitting in a very good place,” said Glendale Deputy Water Services Director Megan Sheldon, who oversees the Water Services Department’s environmental program. “…I think we’re in a good place now, but continual reduction in flows into Lake Mead or dry years on even the Salt River watershed eventually year after year could have an impact.”
Ms. Sheldon noted that Glendale is designated for a 100-year Assured and Adequate Water Supply under the Arizona Department of Water Resources and will look to renew that 100-year designation in 2025.
