It’s a well known fact that water is closely tied to growth. Without water, growth is nearly impossible.
Thanks to the forethought of early city pioneers, Yuma still has enough water to double in size. Nevertheless, as drought concerns envelope the western states, water conservation will become more important as the city moves into the future.
Jeremy McCall, the Yuma director of utilities, recently presented information on the city’s water resources during the latest episode of the Binational Trade Webinar Series. The third edition of the series has focused on infrastructure, including power, natural gas and water, and how it affects economic development of the binational region.
The series is a collaboration between Greater Yuma Economic Development Corp., 4FrontED, Greater Yuma Port Authority, Yuma County and OPRODE, an economic development organization in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora.
