About the Project

ASU’s Kyl Center for Water Policy, part of the Morrison Institute for Public Policy, held design workshops with over 200 experts in water, land use, environmental and economic development. Input from these experts helped us to create the Arizona Water Blueprint.

The Arizona Water Blueprint is a data-rich, interactive map of Arizona’s water resources and infrastructure. Offering data visualizations and in-depth multimedia content on important water-related topics, the Water Blueprint is a tool for holistic thinking to inform policy decisions and good water stewardship.


The Kyl Center for Water Policy at Morrison Institute is dedicated to seeking water solutions. The Kyl Center's work is made possible by the generosity of institutional and individual donors. Learn more about supporting the Kyl Center with a financial contribution.

As a community-based not-for-profit water and energy company, SRP provides water and power to more than 2 million people living in central Arizona. SRP has provided these essential resources for more than a century.

Tucson Water

Tucson Water is part of the City of Tucson, Arizona, government and serves more than 731,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers.

City of Phoenix

For over 100 years, Phoenix Water has delivered safe and clean drinking water to Phoenix residents. Today, Phoenix Water provides water to more than 1.5 million customers.


Arizona Public Service generates energy for 2.7 million Arizonans. The company's service territory stretches across the state, from the border town of Douglas to the vistas of the Grand Canyon, from the solar fields of Gila Bend to the ponderosa pines of Payson.

Central Arizona Project

In the early 20th century, Arizona’s leaders knew the state’s future depended on a water supply that was secure, stable and renewable. They pursued that vision; the result was Central Arizona Project (CAP), a 336-mile system that brings Colorado River water to central and southern Arizona, delivers the state’s single largest renewable water supply and serves 80% of the state’s population.

The Arizona Water Blueprint was designed and is maintained by the Kyl Center for Water Policy, a part of the ASU Morrison Institute for Public Policy.

Special Thanks

The Kyl Center for Water Policy at Morrison Institute is particularly thankful for the work of two ASU graduate students studying geographic information systems, Jacob Perez and Nick Carroll. Both brought the skill and dedication needed to make the Blueprint what it is today.
