Groundwater bill creates water committee for Mohave County

By Agata Popeda Special to Today’s News-heraldMay 23, 2019

A bill that establishes a water study committee to examine Mohave County groundwater depletion and develop potential solutions passed the Arizona Senate on May 14 and is now waiting for the governor’s signature.

The rural community in Mohave County relies on groundwater, but have few tools for managing its groundwater future. The bill (HB 2467) is sponsored by Rep. Regina Cobb, R-Kingman, and supported by Environmental Defense Action Fund and partners that make up the Water for Arizona Coalition.

The Mohave County west basin water users study committee will consist of 11 members.
