According to one Pinal County developer, the county’s water woes have already started.

“As of right now, we have no water,” said Patrick Johnson, the president of the 2,500-acre Attesa motor sport complex planned west of Casa Grande, told an Arizona House of Representatives Ad Hoc Committee on Groundwater Supply in Pinal County Friday.

“As of 2014 when my partner and I bought that property, there was no problem,” Johnson said. “We applied for water. And in 2015 we were told the (new groundwater) model would be out. There would be a brand new model out and by golly we were going to figure it out.”
