Arizona Forward is committed to Arizona water.
As Arizona’s oldest environmental advocacy group, Arizona Forward has a water committee made up of more than 60 people tied to various organizations — including cities and counties from across the state. Together, these individuals and organizations explore every facet of our desert’s most precious commodity — water. From exploring how water plays a role in industry operations and recreational uses to seeking the most innovative and progressive sustainability and conservation methods, Arizona Forward honors and supports the champions of Arizona’s future water planning.
Arizona Forward’s 2019 Environmental Excellence Awards reflected that focus as the group honored several water-related projects, including the Governor’s Award for Arizona’s Future, which was presented to Arizona’s Drought Contingency Plan Process (DCP) and committee co-chairs. After months of collaboration and compromise, the DCP plan details how impacted stakeholders, including Arizona and other states, will adapt to reductions on Colorado River water to secure water supplies for Arizona residents.
