Event description

Description

Water matters to everyone! Join us on Wednesday, April 9th at the Gila County Fairgrounds to hear about recent work and future considerations around water - the lifeblood of Arizona communities. Along with a discussion with decision-makers and natural resources managers, we will receive presentations over the following topics:

WATER SUPPLY & DEMAND | By better understanding water supplies and demands, we can take steps now to address threats and alternatives for the future.

TRAILS & ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP | In partnership with RCAC and the Pinal Creek Trail Committee, we have been working toward developing a demonstration site and regional trail concept that would bolster tourism and economy, as well as provide environmental enhancement.

WATER EDUCATION & AWARENESS | Hear about local water education efforts and how they can be supported and harnessed to be more effective.

CONNECTIVITY PLANNING | The University of Arizona College of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture will share the results of a semester-long project developing connectivity options and site plans for Cobre Valley and the San Carlos Apache Reservation.

- Event participants are encouraged to ask questions and offer ideas!

BACKGROUND | In September 2018, leaders from government, industry, and not-for-profit sectors shared their water experiences and lessons at the First Cobre Valley Forum on Water. We learned about local and regional opportunities to achieve a resilient water future for healthy communities, businesses, and the environment. Since then, we have been working with community partners to gather more information about the water issues and opportunities that Forum participants said were most important to address. A summary of the First Forum is available online here.
