Arizona needs help to secure its water future. Ready to pitch in?

By Joanna Allhands | Arizona Republic

It’s tough enough to find a unicorn.

Now try finding nine of them.

That’s basically the task before Gov. Doug Ducey and legislative leadership as they search for applicants to serve on a reworked Water Infrastructure Finance Authority (WIFA) board.

Arizona must use less water, find new sources

Lawmakers earmarked a billion dollars this session to help fund much-needed water conservation and augmentation projects.

And not a moment too soon, given that the state’s two largest water supplies – groundwater and the Colorado River – are under serious threat. We need to find ways to use less water, and we need to find additional sources of it, like, yesterday.

It remains to be seen whether we’ll see the full billion, considering that this investment is to be made over three years. It will be up to a future Legislature to follow through on the final two-thirds, presuming it has enough cash available to make those allocations.
