To facilitate development of the Environmental Impact Statement which must accompany the Section 10 multi-species conservation proposal, a series of issue papers is being published. This study discusses water resources in the context of the alternatives being considered to date.
This study from the citizens of the Arivaca community proposes to establish an Arivaca Resource Management Zone, where a atwo level management plan integrates the otherwise fragmented land use and water policies of the various regulatory agencies. The Arivaca watershed contains one of the last remaining cienegas and perennial streams in southern Arizona. These unusual water features exist because the area is still in a state of balance, where annual water consumption is less than the natural recharge replenishing the aquifer during years of average precipitation.
Provides basic information about the source of surface water in Cienega Creek at the downstream end of the natural preserve, which will contribute to efforts to conceptualize and implement effective land management proposals for the SDCP. Study results indicate that the surface flow or subflow from Agua Verde Creek do not significantly influence the water in the Cienega Creek.
Elements of the comprehensive plan now include planning for water resources that must address the currently available surface water, groundwater, and effluent supplies and provide an analysis of how the future growth projected in the county plan will be adequately served by the legally and physically available water supply. This is the first study to be issued as part of the Water Resources Element and identifies a number of measures that can be taken to conserve water, including measures that can be taken by Pima County in the form of ordinance adoption.
Concerns research into the origin of water sustaining the Bingham Cienega. For purposes of long term management, we need to understand what the source of water is for the various riparian areas.
Documents the preparation of a geographic information system cover that represents springs in Pima County, discusses characteristics of certain springs in Pima County, and identifies actions needed to improve the conservation of springs and spring habitats.
Describes a comprehensive regional policy direction to achieve meaningful riparian restoration necessary for endangered species compliance and the basic relation of water policy to conservation planning.
The purpose of this report is to summarize information relevant to water aspects of the SDCP and the Pima County Comprehensive Plan. It deals with water supply and human water demand, and water supplies and needs for riparian and wetland habitat.
Includes the Pima County staff response to Tucson Water Comments (May 16, 2001) and An Evaluation of Hydrologic and Riparian Resources in Saguaro National Park (March 2001). Groundwater withdrawals pose a threat to middle basin riparian areas.
Includes the information needed to draft the Water Resources Element and also describes the options that Pima County has to deal with water supply issues in light of the need to protect riparian and wetland areas under the SDCP.
