Legal Alert – The Phoenix AMA Groundwater Model: What it Means and What’s Next
Authored by Kyle Stenseth, with contributions from Michael Pearce, Grady Gammage, Jr, and Stephen Anderson.
On June 1, 2023, the Arizona Department of Water Resources (“ADWR”) released a new groundwater model for the Phoenix Active Management Area (“AMA”) through ADWR’s Assured Water Supply (“AWS”) program. The model covers the Hassayampa and East and West Salt River Valley sub-basins of the AMA, which captures most of the Phoenix Metropolitan Area. The model projects that at the end of a 100-year projection period—in the year 2123—four percent (4%) of the total simulated groundwater demand in the sub-basins will be unmet.
