The public is invited to have their say on Tucson’s water future

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson Water’s “One Water 2100” master plan outlines the city’s water resource management and infrastructure needs over the next 80 years.

Currently in its “Community Engagement and Adoption” phase, the City of Tucson and Tucson Water are seeking public input during a community town hall on Tuesday, August 16.

The “One Water 2100” plan is based on a nationally recognized approach to water resources management, which takes into account factors such as environmental sustainability, social equity and economic vitality.

Tucson’s current water resources include groundwater, CAP water, and recycled water. Planners predict that “a number of evolutionary factors will impact Tucson’s water resources over the next 80 years,” according to the One Water website.

Officials say this integrated approach aims to manage water resources while taking into account changing conditions, such as population growth, climate change, economic development, conservation practices and water quality.

The event, to be held at the Tucson Convention Center, will give Tucson Water customers the opportunity to provide feedback as part of the planning process.
