(No paper) System demands with the City of Phoenix water system are accommodated by utilization of water supplied from several different sources distributed through an interconnected system. The majority of the City of Phoenix water supply is delivered from the Salt River Project (SRP). Landowners within the boundaries of the SRP have historically perpetuated their right to develop and receive water from dams and reservoirs that have been part of the original project definition since the turn of the century. Surface water from the Salt and Verde Rivers is conveyed through the SRP canals and withdrawn at the City's Deer Valley, Squaw Peak and Val Vista water treatment plants. While service to these areas has been identified as on project deliveries, the City also provides service to lands outside the original SRP boundaries in what is termed the off project area.
