Cultural Water Demand in the Peach Springs 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 4.8-7.  Effluent generation including facility ownership, location, population served and not served, volume treated, disposal method and treatment level is shown in Table 4.8-8.  Figure 4.8-10 shows the location of demand centers.  A description of cultural water demand data sources and methods is found in Volume 1, Appendix A.  More detailed information on cultural water demands is found in Section 4.0.7.  For information on gpcd and annual water demand by individual community water systems in this basin see ADWR's Community Water System Program annual water use reporting summary.

Cultural Water Demands

  • Population in this basin declined in the 1980s and increased minimally between 1990 and 2000.  Overall, the population remained virtually unchanged between 1980 and 2000, with a population of 1,804 in 1980 and 1,780 in 2000.  

  • There are no recorded surface water diversions in this basin.  Groundwater use has remained relatively constant from the 1970s to the present, with an average of approximately 650 AFA from 2001-2005 and less than 300 AFA for industrial use and 350 AFA for municipal use.

  • The majority of the land in this basin is within the Hualapai Indian Reservation.  The only demand centers are municipal and industrial and are located in the vicinity of Peach Springs.

  • As of 2005 there were 36 registered wells with a pumping capacity of less than or equal to 35 gallons per minute and 18 wells with a pumping capacity of more than 35 gallons per minute.

Effluent Generation

  • Refer to Table 4.8-8.
  • There is one wastewater treatment facility, Peach Spring Sewer System, which serves Peach Springs.

  • Over 1,500 people are served by this facility which generates 112 acre-feet of effluent per year.

  • The facility discharges to an evaporation pond and to unlined infiltration basins.
