What to Expect

Phoenix will continue to provide clean and reliable water to its customers without interruption. Phoenix's Colorado River supplies are some of the highest priority supplies within Central Arizona and will not be reduced in early shortage. The majority of Phoenix's water portfolio comes from the Salt & Verde rivers.  Phoenix has access to additional supplies in the Salt & Verde rivers, groundwater and reclaimed water. Phoenix's effective water management and efficient water use provide the foundation for a thriving economy.
