This month, the Arizona House of Representatives’ Committee on Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources is holding a series of special meetings – one in Kingman (June 13th), one in Camp Verde (June 15th), and one in Buckeye (June 20th). The goal of these meetings is to give legislators a chance to learn about constituents’ concerns regarding water supplies and to investigate potential solutions to the water issues facing our state.
Representative Rusty Bowers and Senator Gail Griffin will chair the meetings, and other legislators will also attend. Of particular interest will be a discussion about the Lower Basin States of Arizona, California, and Nevada, and their diligent efforts working on a Drought Contingency Plan (DCP) to stave off shortages in the Colorado River, which Mexico has also joined. It is critical that Arizona Department of Water Resources be authorized by the Legislature to sign Arizona on to the DCP, and to speak as “the one voice” for Arizona’s Colorado River users.
All citizens wishing to make their views known are encouraged to attend, fill out a speaker slip and present their views.
This is a great opportunity to tell your state officials directly your opinions about Arizona’s rivers and sustainable supply of clean, safe, and reliable drinking water. We hope you can join!
