Part of: Artificial Recharge of Ground Water


Mined ground water has historically supplied the municipal water needs of the City of Scottsdale. State enactment of stringent ground water legislation has mandated an eventual termination of dependency on mined ground water as the sole municipal water source. Water resources other than mined ground water are available to the City, but at present generally not in sufficient quantities or in the right location to be effectively utilized. Artificial ground water recharge, storage and recovery are planned to play a prominent role in future City water resource management. The City of Scottsdale has recently embarked on a recharge program to ensure that municipal water needs are met well into the next century.
