New Mexico Unit of the Central Arizona Project

New Mexico Unit of the Central Arizona Project

United States

The NM Unit would include water diversion, storage, conveyance, and delivery components, in accordance with the Arizona Water Settlements Act of 2004 (AWSA), Public Law 108-451. It would divert water from the Gila River and its tributaries in New Mexico, including the San Francisco River, and underground water sources and convey it for storage in off-river (not on the main stem of the Gila and San Francisco Rivers) sites in the Cliff-Gila Valley, in the Virden Valley, and/or along the San Francisco River in New Mexico. The NM Unit would deliver water allotted under the AWSA to users in southwestern New Mexico.

The purpose of the proposed action is to develop a NM Unit of the CAP to allow for consumptive use of water from the Gila River, its tributaries or underground water sources in southwestern New Mexico, diverted in accordance with the CUFA and pursuant to the terms of the AWSA.

The needs for the proposed action are to (a) develop water for delivery at the times, locations, and in quantities that will improve agricultural use, and (b) provide capability for future expansion for authorized beneficial purposes.
