  • All subdivisions receiving an adequacy determination are in Mohave County.  Fourteen water adequacy determinations for more than 1,697 lots have been made in this basin through December 2008.
  • One determination of inadequacy has been made north of Lake Havasu City because the applicant failed to demonstrate a legal right to use the water or failure to demonstrate their legal authority to serve the subdivision.
  • There are two designated water providers, Havasu Heights Water Improvement District and Lake Havasu City.  The total projected or annual estimated demand for Havasu Heights WID is 140 acre-feet.  Lake Havasu City does not have a projected or annual estimated demand in their designation.
