Tucson City Council approves city plan to sustain, diversify future drinking water sources
The Tucson City Council has approved a plan laid out by municipal authorities to secure drinking water for residents in the coming years. In a 6-1 vote last Tuesday, the council green-lit what’s called the One Water 2100 Plan — it’s part of a sustainability package put together by Tucson officials and it spells out where drinking water for Tucson will come from in the coming years. … One Water 2100 outlines four distinct drinking water sources — stormwater, groundwater, surface water and recycled water. The city is looking at ways to manage water resources depending on various factors — like Colorado River allocation, drought management and shifting community needs in Tucson.
