Bisbee effluent to help the San Pedro
Cochise County approved an agreement in August to buy treated effluent from the City of Bisbee for five years for a water recharge project designed to help the San Pedro River.
In an effort to reverse the significant groundwater drawdown from decades of agricultural pumping, this project will put 200 acre-feet of water into the aquifer just north of the border with Mexico.
The story about this recharge project aired on NPR 89.1 on Wednesday, September 25, 2019. Click here to listen.
