The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation declared a Tier I Colorado River water shortage, leaving many Peoria residents questioning what this means for their water supply.

The short answer, Peoria’s water supply is not impacted in these early stages.

As the drought continues and if the shortage levels on the Colorado River continue to worsen, the city has plans in place to ensure its residents aren’t affected.

“A shortage on the Colorado River doesn’t necessarily equal a shortage at your tap,” said Cape Powers, Peoria’s water services director.
