CAGRD 2019 Mid-Plan Review

 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 2019 Mid-Plan Review document includes the key findings shared with the Committee and provides a current status of CAGRD operations. 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.


Highlights from the 2019 Mid-Plan Review included:

  • CAGRD continues to fulfil its statutory duties and complies with Arizona laws
  • Enrollment has trended lower than projections in the 2015 Plan of Operation
  • Obligations have remained relatively steady (approx. 30,000AF/Y)
  • Current water portfolio is well positioned; reduced reliance on excess CAP water
  • Plan to mitigate potential risks to NIA supplies from future shortages by accrual of LTSCs
  • Replenishment Reserve accrual is on track
  • Storage capacity remains sufficient to meet needs
  • Based on current assets and projected revenues, CAGRD is prepared to meet its statutory obligations

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.
