Hundreds of gallons water from the Colorado River gushed through a pipeline and spilled into two newly developed earthen basins near Coolidge’s city limits, marking the fruition of a project that has been years in the making.

Under the federal Drought Contingency Plan, Arizona will likely see a reduction in its water allocation from the Colorado River this year.

As Colorado River Basin states continue to examine the need to make cuts in the use of water coming from the Colorado River, Arizona Water Company’s Pinal Valley Recharge and Recovery Facility seeks to provide more reliable and sustainable water supplies, officials from the company said.
