Water is Arizona’s most precious resource. Yet few people know where their water comes from, who provides it, how its quality is assured, or how secure future water supplies are for Arizona’s 6 million residents. We face very serious water supply sustainability challenges in the coming decades as the state continues to grow and the climate becomes warmer and drier. When there is a shortage, who has priority? Who makes these critical decisions about our water future? ASU Professor of History and Sustainability Paul Hirt takes us on a bird’s eye view of the past, present, and future of water in Arizona.
