Verde River conservation and the Water Fund

Having a clean healthy water supply in Arizona takes cooperation from federal, state and local levels. It is all about striking a balance. A healthy environment and a healthy economy are keys to our long term success. Water is vital to our communities, our food production and us as people. It is our most precious resource. The Nature Conservancy in Arizona, says water is the most important natural resource globally. It is becoming the new oil.
To protect our water resources NCA is asking Arizona corporations and communities to invest in a Water Fund that benefits both the Salt and Verde Rivers. The people living in the Valley of the Sun benefit from the waters of the Verde and Salt Rivers. That water is impacted by the way the forests and farming are managed upstream. The Water Fund brings upstream and downstream users together to find solutions. We are all part of the same water system and must work together to close the gap in supply and demand.
