After examining one of the world’s worst case scenarios, the book turns to the state of Arizona that has one of the world’s more progressive groundwater management programs. After years of debate, the federal government eventually agreed to finance the Central Arizona Project to bring Colorado River water to central Arizona, but with a catch—Arizona first had to get their groundwater pumping under control. This chapter presents the historical background and role of key individuals involved in achieving this goal, as well as lessons to be learned from these efforts.
