Cultural Water Demand in the Aravaipa Canyon Basin

Cultural water demand data including population, number of wells and the average well pumpage and surface water diversions by the municipal, industrial and agricultural sectors are shown in Table 3.1-5.  There is no recorded effluent generation in this basin.  Figure 3.1-10 shows the location of demand centers.  A description of cultural water demand data sources and methods are found here.  More detailed information on cultural water demand is found in Section 3.0.7.

Cultural Water Demand

  • Population increased from 74 to 135 people from 1980 to 2000. 

  • Groundwater pumping is decreasing with an average of less than 1,300 AFA in the period from 2001 – 2005.  Municipal and industrial demand is minimal, less than 300 AFA.

  • Information on surface water diversions is only available for the period of 1991 – 2005.  During this time all surface water diversions have been for agriculture and were less than 1,000 AFA.

  • The only agricultural lands shown on the map are located along the Klondyke Bonita Road in T9S, R21E.  Agricultural lands also historically existed in small pastures scattered along Aravaipa Creek.

  • As of 2005 there were 192 registered wells with a pumping capacity of less than or equal to 35 gpm and 50 wells with a pumping capacity of more than 35 gpm.
