Last August, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation declared a Tier 2a Colorado River Shortage for 2023. The shortage declaration requires Arizona to reduce its use of the Colorado River by 21% and resulted in less water being available to Central Arizona Project water users overall.
Due to the relatively high priority of Peoria’s CAP allocation, the city of Peoria will still receive its full allocation of CAP water in 2023.
Moving forward through continued drought conditions, the city remains committed to reducing water use and asks residents to do the same.
Peoria offers sustainable workshops and rebate programs to save customers money, while reducing water use.
