A small proposal that would nevertheless move water policy considerably in the right direction is pending before the federal Bureau of Reclamation. An investment company, Greenstone, purchased some farm land along the Colorado River. It proposes to sell the Colorado River water rights associated with the land to the town of Queen Creek, which would use the Central Arizona Project distribution system to transport it. It would be enough water to support an estimated 6,000 households.
