  • A total of seventeen water adequacy determinations for 968 lots have been made in this basin through December 2008.

  • Fifteen subdivisions received inadequate determinations. The most common reason for an inadequacy determination is because the applicant did not submit the necessary information and/or the available hydrologic data was insufficient to make a determination.

  • There is one designated provider, City of Globe, with an undetermined projected or annual estimated demand.
