The Arizona State Legislature today passed their portion of the Lower Basin Drought Contingency Plan. This is historic for Arizona and on the deadline set by U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. The consensus plan preserves the levels of Lake Mead and mitigates the losses if and when the Lake reaches below Tier 1 and 2 levels. This plan protects the water rights in Yuma and offsets losses to central Arizona and Pinal County farmers.
