Arizona Water Awareness


The planning areas in this map are composed of groundwater basins (underground reserves of water) and sources of surface water such as rivers, streams and springs. The planning areas are an organizational concept that provide for a regional perspective on water supply, demand and resource issues. The map is from the Arizona Water Atlas, developed by the Arizona Department of Water Resources. The Water Atlas has a wealth of information on each planning area's geography, hydrology, climate, water demand, cultural uses and more.
