Perhaps you’ve heard that much of Arizona experienced the driest winter on record and wondered, “What does this mean for the Phoenix area? Will we run out of water?” Here are the facts about SRP and the water we manage.

We plan for this. Our hydrologists plan every year as if we’re heading into a major drought, so we’re ready when the bad years hit.

You can help. Saving water remains a cost-effective way to stretch supplies.
