Exploring Sierra Vista’s EOP
Sierra Vista Herald/Review recently published an article titled Exploring Sierra Vista’s Environmental Operations Park (EOP), which is one of the active sites in the Cochise Conservation and Recharge Network (CCRN). Since 2002, the EOP has recharged effluent underground to increase groundwater levels and flows in the San Pedro River. It is the largest water reclamation project in the Upper San Pedro Sub-watershed.
The EOP offers docent-led tours, allowing visitors an up-close view of an active recharge site as well as the wildlife that is attracted to the water features. Tours are free and open to the public.
