This report summaries PAG's groundwater and surface water monitoring between July and June each fiscal/ monitoring year. The report contains monitoring methodology, comprehensive maps, and graphs of trends for surface flow volume, wet-dry flow lengths, groundwater levels and water chemistry. It also contains information on drought, erosion and repeat photography.
Pima Association of Governments updated a portion of the Water Usage Along Selected Streams in Pima County, Arizona, which PAG created in 2000. The updated report and datasets show current potential water usage in these critical areas. Deliverables include the shapefiles, spreadsheets and maps that accompany this memorandum. The purpose of this report is to provide updated information about the location and pumping history of wells located in Pima County near shallow groundwater areas, generally located near drainages.
This report summarizes published reports and public datasets pertaining to the subsurface hydrology of Sopori Basin. It includes descriptions of the hydrogeology of the basin, recharge, the number and type of wells, well installation frequency, changes in water levels through time, shallow groundwater areas, groundwater pumping, grandfathered irrigation rights and water quality. Data sources and limitations also are discussed. This report is intended to provide a broad understanding of the groundwater conditions in Sopori Basin based on existing information.
Chiefly statistics from monitoring of wells in the areas adjacent to the Cave Creek Landfill.
The Augusta Resources Corporation proposes to construct the Rosemont Mine project in the northern Santa Rita Mountains. This report is a reconnaissance analysis of the conceptual flow and water balance in the area. The conceptual flow model for the area is based on topography, geology and precipitation and identifies the likely flow paths in the watershed and aquifer system. The water balance includes estimates of recharge to and groundwater flow from the area; there is no evapotranspiration discharge from the regional groundwater.
Brings together the findings of previous reports and suggests policies to address water quality issues in Pima County.
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.
The Groundwater Cleanup Task Force has examined various aspects of Arizona's cleanup programs as well as similar programs in other states and on the federal level. Its members have debated these issues in detail, and present this report as a summary of the Task Force's work and recommendations.
In 2001, ADWR undertook a review of the Upper San Pedro Basin to determine if it met the statutory requirements for designation as an AMA. This report reviews the water supply and demand of the USP Basin in the context of the statutory criteria and includes a discussion of whether any of the criteria have been met. Previously, ADWR conducted a study of the USP Basin and issued a report in 1988 in which ADWR determined that the Basin did not meet the statutory criteria for AMA designation. ADWR indicated in the report that it would reassess conditions in the ...
The final version of the report issued in early 2001. County staff responded in writing to clarify misunderstandings in the letter by Tucson Water. Pima County will continue to assess and look for ways to contribute to the protection of the resources in the Tanque Verde area.
The State And Local Arizona Documents (SALAD) collection contains documents published by the State of Arizona, its Counties, incorporated Cities or Towns, or affiliated Councils of Government; documents produced under the auspices of a state or local agency, board, commission or department, including reports made to these units; and Salt River Project, a licensed municipality. ASU is a primary collector of state publications and makes a concerted effort to acquire and catalog most materials published by state and local governmental agencies.
The ASU Digital Repository provides access to digital SALAD publications, however the ASU Libraries’ non-digitized Arizona documents can be searched through the ASU Libraries Catalog and Library One Search. For additional assistance, Ask A Government Documents Librarian.
Publications issued by the Morrison Institute for Public Programs at Arizona State University are available in the ASU Digital Repository Morrison Institute for Public Policy - Publications Archive collection.
