Accomplishments

water advocatesWhere: Arizona-Sonora
What: AMC Advocates for Water
Pillars: Advocacy
The Central Arizona Project (CAP) was halted by action of the Executive Department of the United States in 1973. This federal reclamation project to supplement water in Arizona had already been authorized. It had funding. It was partially completed. AMC petitioned and urged the President of the United States and the Department of the Interior to reconsider. Construction of the project resumed and was substantially completed in 1994. CAP now manages the single largest renewable water supply in Arizona, serving approximately 1.8 million people in the state.
