The Tucson Water Department began to use Colorado River Water from the Central Arizona Project in 2001 and eventually stopped pumping water from the city’s Central Basin. Since then, the basin has been recovering. Members of Watershed Management Group say this and other efforts will create an opportunity to restore flowing water to parts of the region’s rivers and washes, bringing back samples of aquatic environments.
