Tucson partners with Phoenix to ensure water supply

As Lake Mead hits its lowest point in almost 85 years, Arizona's two largest cities are taking steps to bank water for a not-so-rainy day. Phoenix and Tucson have formed a partnership that will store excess water from Phoenix's Central Arizona Project allotment in Tucson.

As long as Phoenix has to deposit “wet water” before it can take it out, and can’t take out more than they store, I don’t have a problem with this.

They should pay our pumping costs, however.

By storing it in Tucson, rather than Phoenix, they are pumping water up-hill an extra 1500’ to get it here.  I wonder if Federal Taxpayers are paying for part of the pumping costs.
