Our Water Future: Citizen Water Advocacy Group Answers Questions

Sep 14 2019 -
10:00am to 12:00pm
How can Prescott balance housing development and water use with long-range water sustainability?
 
What can the city do to encourage neighboring cities to conserve water and reduce depletion of our shared aquifer?
 
These and other pressing water issues will be addressed at a public meeting presented by the Citizens Water Advocacy Group (CWAG) on Saturday, September 14, from 10 a.m.-noon, at the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 882 Sunset Avenue, Prescott. 
 
This program is a follow-up to CWAG’s Prescott city council and mayoral candidate forum held on August 3 and will focus on questions in the four topic areas presented to the candidates: safe yield, conservation, sustainability, and the Big Chino Water Ranch and the impact of a pipeline on the Verde River. Questions asked by forum audience members and by attendees to this event will also be answered. The forum questions are on the CWAG website at www.cwagaz.org, and a video of the forum can be accessed on the website’s video archive.
 
The City of Prescott’s new water policy proposals will be discussed as well. The City's water policy page is at www.prescott-az.gov/water-sewer/water-management/water-policy/ . Comments on the policy CWAG submitted are under "Current Issues" at www.cwagaz.org
 
Presenters will be Gary Beverly, CWAG President and Public Policy Committee Chair, and Ed Wolfe, CWAG Education Committee Chair. Beverly holds a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of California, has taught physical science and alternative energy at Yavapai College, and worked as a farmer, contractor and businessman. Wolfe, Ph.D., is a retired geologist who spent his career with the U.S. Geological Survey. Wolfe is a founding member of the Citizens Water Advocacy Group and the former chairman of the Verde Watershed Association.
