Drought Pipeline - Why This Project is Needed ​

​The Drought Pipeline Project is essential to the economic health and vitality of Phoenix.  This project will ensure all residents have access to safe, reliable, clean drinking water during future times of shortage on the Colorado River.​

The primary importance is for customers to have access to an alternative water supply in North Phoenix 

North Phoenix residents (more tha​n 400,000 people) are almost exclusively served by Colorado River water treated at two water treatment plants. The new pipelines and pump stations will be used to alleviate the effects of drought, by ensuring that water supplies from the Salt and Verde Rivers are available to north Phoenix during future shortage on the Colorado River.​ 

Check if you receive Colorado River Water or Salt and Verde River Water.
