Phoenix Public Library: Colorado River Shortage Town Hall
As part of the ongoing effort to keep the public informed about how reduced allocations of Colorado River water are impacting the City of Phoenix, Phoenix Water experts will deliver a presentation at various locations in the weeks ahead.
The speakers will focus on how the City manages its diverse and robust water supplies, decades of planning and forethought that have put the City in a strong position to handle this eventuality, new infrastructure investments, and other strategies in development to prepare for a hotter, drier climate. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions about water conservation efforts and how Phoenix is positioning itself for a sustainable future with less Colorado River water. The United States Bureau of Reclamation declared a Tier 2a shortage for the Colorado River in 2023. These town hall meetings are another step in the vital process of informing, educating, and listening as everyone comes together to understand this situation and search for viable solutions. The presentations at these meetings will be the same, but the discussion will vary depending on the questions from attendees.
