Maricopa County water managers tour recharge facilities
On May 30, 2019 a dozen staff people from the Maricopa Flood Control District, City of Surprise and the City of Buckeye made a stop in Cochise County to visit the county’s recharge facility in Palominas. Engineers, floodplain managers and environmental planners made up the contingency of folks interested in the way the county is addressing flood control issues while, at the same time, recharging the aquifer that feeds the San Pedro River, ensuring streamflow that is important to wildlife and maintaining riparian habitat. The Palominas Recharge and Flood Control Facility is a unique and innovative project that is getting more attention around the state as are the collaborative efforts of the CCRN.
