You may have heard the water in Arizona is “crunchy” or “you can chew the water.” In a sense that is true.
Arizonans get their water from a variety of sources. Tucson is the Central Arizona Project’s (CAP) largest municipal customer followed by Phoenix, Scottsdale and Mesa. The Salt River Project (SRP) manages the Verde & Salt River water system that delivers 800,000 acre-feet of water across 375 square miles. Forty-three percent of our state’s water is extracted from groundwater wells. It’s also important to note that no city is dependent on a water single water source and it’s not so far-fetched to think in some areas of Arizona, the water that fills your cup could have drops of water from CAP, SRP & groundwater combined.
