PHX Surf expected to use less water than agriculture would on the land

By Jay Taylor | InMaricopa

Maricopa’s first true destination attraction is looking to make a big splash when it opens next year.

But will that splash impact Maricopa’s water supply? Jake Lenderking, a Senior Vice President at Global Water, said that while acres of water in surf pools, lazy rivers and water slides might seem like they would be huge water users, they actually are not.

“There is the greater Colorado River issue that we see in the paper all the time,” Lenderking said. “The city of Maricopa is actually separate from that issue. We do not derive water directly from the Colorado River. We have our own supplies in a designation of assured water supply that is about 23,000 acre-feet, of which we are using about 8,000 acre-feet today.”

Lenderking offered some perspective on how much the 71-acre surf park, at Loma Road and State Route 238, will use.
