Pinal County farmers may still face slight water reductions next year despite the healthy snowpack in the Rocky Mountains, officials say.
The Central Arizona Water Conservation District board heard a Colorado River conditions update at its June 11 meeting. The update reported an excellent May in terms of Colorado River Basin run-off, yet board members underscored that still-half-full reservoirs point to the need for continued conservation.
As of Friday, the snowpack in the Upper Colorado River Basin, which includes Colorado and Utah, was listed at 1,329 percent above normal for this time of year.
