  • All subdivisions receiving an adequacy determination are in Mohave County.  Thirty-two water adequacy determinations have been made in this basin through December 2008. Of the 4,415 lots in 30 subdivisions for which lot information is available 1,200 lots, or 27%, were determined to be adequate.

  • The most common reason for an inadequacy determination was because the applicant chose not to submit necessary information and/or available hydrologic data was insufficient to make a determination.

  • Six Analysis of Adequate Water Supply applications for a total of 110,946 lots have been approved for this basin.

  • There are four designated water providers with a total projected or annual estimated demand of 7,434.86 acre-feet.  One provider, City of Kingman, does not have a projected or annual estimated demand.
