New Arizona Water Blueprint features!

Explore new features of the Arizona Water Blueprint!

Since the Kyl Center for Water Policy at Morrison Institute launched the Arizona Water Blueprint in June, we've been consistently updating and refining its features.

Now, users can connect directly from the Blueprint to data dashboards about water demand by sector in each Active Management Area, groundwater levels in groundwater sub-basins, tribal allocations of Colorado River water, and water withdrawals in Irrigation Non-expansion Areas.

We've uploaded more than a dozen new data layers, bringing the total number of data layers to 55, including flood hazards, precipitation, superfund sites, current and historic fires, irrigation grandfathered rights, and depth to bedrock.

We've also improved the pop-ups on the Blueprint map by including more images and links to data and resources to enhance the user experience.
