"OV adds 500 acre feet of CAP water to potable water system
Oro Valley, Arizona, (August 11, 2014) - On Wednesday, August 13 at 9 a.m., the Town of Oro Valley will celebrate the completion of a blending facility on Calle Buena Vista, just north of Hardy Road, which will allow the addition of 500 acre feet of Central Arizona Project (CAP) water to be delivered to Oro Valley Water service areas, bringing the Town's total CAP delivery to 2,000 acre feet per year.
The delivery of CAP water first became a reality in January 2012, through a partnership with Tucson Water, when the Town began delivering approximately 1,500 acre feet per year.
One acre foot of water equals 325,851 gallons. For every gallon of CAP water delivered, Oro Valley Water Utility replaces a corresponding gallon of water pumped from the Town's ground water, preserving the aquifer.
"This project will further protect and preserve the Town's groundwater resources in Southern Arizona by delivering our Central Arizona Project water," commented Oro Valley Water Utility Director Philip Saletta. "It is an example of regional cooperation and the commitment between Oro Valley and the City of Tucson that follows through on our existing water agreement."
With this latest addition, 42% of Oro Valley's total water deliveries now come from renewable water resources." (Source: Oro Valley Press Release)
