  • All subdivisions receiving an adequacy determination are in Yavapai County.  Twenty-eight water adequacy determinations for 2,235 lots have been made in this basin through December 2008.  One thousand eight hundred and ninety-six lots in 19 subdivisions, or 85% or lots, were determined to be adequate.

  • All determinations of inadequacy were because the applicant did not submit the necessary information and/or the available hydrologic data was insufficient to make a determination.  Two subdivisions receiving inadequate determinations also had existing supplies that were unreliable or physically unavailable or the groundwater exceeded the depth-to-water criteria.

  • One Analysis of Adequate Water Supply application for 2,324 lots has been approved in this basin.

  • There are two designated water providers, CDC Wickenburg Water and Town of Wickenburg.  The total projected or annual estimated demand for CDC Wickenburg Water is 1,224 acre-feet. The Town of Wickenburg does not have a projected or annual estimated demand.
