CAGRD 2019 Mid-Plan Review

The public is welcome to comment on the draft Central Arizona Groundwater Replenishment District (CAGRD) Mid-Plan Review. 

The Mid-Plan Review is not required by law, but rather is a commitment by the Board to enhanced reporting and transparency in CAGRD’s operations.

Over the past year, through a series of reports and briefings to the CAGRD and Underground Storage Committee, CAGRD staff members have reviewed the trends and operational activities that have occurred since the approval of the 2015 Plan of Operation. The Mid-Plan Review document includes the key findings shared with the Committee this year and provides a current status of CAGRD operations.

The Committee and CAGRD staff is looking for comments regarding:

  • the structure of the document,
  • areas of the report needing further clarification or detail, and/or,
  • constructive stakeholder feedback that provides suggestions for changes or improvements

To comment, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Enrolling and developing a member land subdivision in the Central Arizona Groundwater Replenishment District (CAGRD) can be a complex process involving multiple phases, agencies, and fees.  Generally, a developer will engage with CAGRD to enroll their planned development, and then the homebuilder will take on the responsibility of the next phase of interactions (though the developer and homebuilder may be one and the same).  Once the new member land homes have been built and sold, the homeowner will take over the responsibility of paying annual assessments and membership dues to CAGRD.  CAGRD produced a video to help shed light on this process and to provide clarity to developers and homebuilders on when CAGRD documentation and fees are required.
