The Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) and Central Arizona Project (CAP) released a joint statement addressing the recent news from the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) that the state’s water supply from the Colorado River System will be reduced by one-fifth in 2023.
Arizona Republican Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake reacted to this news; if elected, she said she would fight for reasonable solutions. “The Feds force AZ to take more cuts to our water allocation while CA gets a pass,” Lake tweeted. “As Governor I will fight for fair & equitable solutions. We will not allow the Feds to dry up AZ while others like CA don’t do a thing.”
