Water Adequacy Determinations in the Agua Fria Basin

Water adequacy determination information including the subdivision name, location, number of lots, adequacy determination, reason for the inadequacy determination, date of determination and subdivision water provider are shown in Table 5.1-10A and B for analysis of adequate water supply.  Figure 5.1-12 shows the locations of subdivisions keyed to the Table.  For a description of the Adequacy Program click here.  For adequacy determination data sources and methods see Volume 1, Appendix A.  For more information on adequacy determinations in the Agua Fria Basin see Section 5.0.5 - Population.

  • All subdivisions receiving an adequacy determination are in Yavapai County.  Fifteen water adequacy determinations have been made in this basin through December 2008. Of the 1,177 lots in fourteen subdivisions for which lot information is available, 973 lots in nine subdivisions, or 83% of lots, were determined to be adequate.
  • All inadequacy determinations were because the applicant chose not to submit the necessary information, and/or the available hydrologic data was insufficient to make a determination. One inadequate determination also stated the existing supply was unreliable or physically unavailable or groundwater exceeds the depth-to-water criteria.
  • One analysis of adequate water supply for 50 lots has been issued for this basin.
