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 Douglas Basin see Section 3.0.5 - Population.

  • All subdivisions receiving an adequacy determination are in Cochise County.  Eight water adequacy determinations for 433 lots have been made in this basin through December 2008.  Eighty-three lots, or 19%, were determined to be adequate.
  • All determinations of inadequacy were because the applicant chose not to submit necessary information and/or available hydrologic data were insufficient to make a determination.
  • There is one designated water provider, City of Douglas, which does not have a total projected or annual estimated demand.
