A group of local developers, government officials, residents, water suppliers and farmers may be tasked with finding a solution to the county’s water dilemmas.

State Rep. David Cook, R-Globe, asked Pinal County Supervisor Steve Miller, R-Casa Grande, to consider chairing a local task force that would try to come up with possible solutions. Cook also asked Arizona Water Company President Bill Garfield and Jake Lenderking, the director of water resources for Global Water Resources, to serve on the task force as co-vice chairs.

“The solution has to be from the bottom up for Pinal County,” Cook said.
