"In many parts of the world, nature adequately replenishes groundwater each year," Townsley said. "However, here in the desert, nature is not able to replenish groundwater as fast as it has been extracted and thus groundwater cannot be depended on forever as our only source of drinking water."
Grumbles agreed, saying, "Groundwater is Arizona's most precious liquid asset and it is very underappreciated. Today is a day that celebrates sustainability that will turn into billions of gallons of groundwater saved for the West Valley."
The White Tanks Regional Water Treatment Facility saves more than three billion gallons of groundwater per year. With future expansions, it could save significantly more. This also reduces our need to consume electricity, another Arizona American Water goal to protect our planet and minimize cost to customers.
The White Tanks Regional Water Treatment Facility was conceived by Arizona American Water and the West Valley planning group known as WESTCAPS. WESTCAPS is a ground of West Valley water providers working together to make the wisest use of CAP Water.
