Colorado River Basics

Central Arizona Groundwater Replenishment District (CAGRD) and reference to the Kyle Center's report entitled "The Elusive Concept Of An Assured Water Supply" of which TA has referenced in the past.
Groundwater Pumping and reference to the Kyle Center's report entitled "The Myth of Safe-Yield: Pursing the Goal of Safe-Yield Isn't Saving Our Groundwater" of which TA has referenced in the past.

The Kyle Center administrators/staff include legal/water resource professionals that do an excellent job researching and reporting the undistorted true facts and present them in a manner we can all understand. It is refreshing to see this coming from public university in Arizona.
