Water adequacy determination information including the subdivision name, location, number of lots, adequacy determination, reason for the inadequacy determination, date of determination and subdivision water provider are shown in Table 4.6-10A and B for water reports and analysis of adequate water supply.  Designated water provider information is shown in Table 4.6-9C with date of application, date the designation was issued and projected or annual estimated demand.  Figure 4.6-11 shows the locations of subdivisions and designated providers keyed to the Table.  For a description of the Adequacy Program click here.  For adequacy determination data sources see Volume 1, Appendix C.  For more information on adequacy determinations in the Lake Mohave Basin see Section 4.0.5 - Population.

  • All subdivisions receiving an adequacy determination are in Mohave County.  Two hundred and sixty-five water adequacy determinations have been made in this basin through December 2008. Of the 32,802 lots in 262 subdivisions for which lot information is available, 32,530 lots or 99% were determined to be adequate.

  • The three determinations of inadequacy were based on: the applicant’s failure to demonstrate a legal right to use the water or failure to demonstrate their legal authority to serve the subdivision; the applicant did not submit the necessary information and/or available hydrologic data were insufficient to make a determination; and water quality.

  • Five Analyses of Adequate Water Supply applications have been approved for this basin, for a total of 663 lots.

    There is one designated water provider, Bullhead City, with a projected or annual estimated demand of 23,691 acre-feet.
