From the Campaign Website: #8: Arizona's Water Problem

Last edited Sun Jun 13, 2021, 05:29 PM - Edit history (1)

The seven state Colorado Protocol was signed in 1922. Letís look at the population of all seven states in the 1920 census:

AZ: 340K
CA: 3.4M
NV: 77.5K
NM: 360K
CO: 940K
UT: 450K
WY: 195K
TOTAL: Almost 5.8M.

Letís look at the population of the 2020 census:

AZ: 7.2M
CA: 39.6M
NV: 3.1M
NM: 2.1M
CO: 5.8M
UT: 3.3M
WY: 576K
TOTAL: Almost 61.7M.

Ten times the population in 100 years using the same amount of water. Why donít the Republicans in the Arizona Legislature see this and recognize that water is about the most precious finite resource in the southwest? Why doesnít Gov. Doug Ducey care?

This is what happens when you have unsustainable growth lead by Realtor and Construction Industries that manipulate their data to prove the very low bar that all their new developments will have 100 years of water.

Right now, Lake Mead, according to KOLDís broadcast the week of 06/07/21 in Tucson, is at 37%. Passing it as I drove back from Las Vegas, I saw how low it is.

This urban sprawl, combined with climate change and a super drought, have given us a major water crisis.

Working with the other states and federal government to develop pipelines from areas with more water into Arizona and the Southwest would solve our problems. Developing a new Colorado Protocol and convincing California to go the desalinization route would help as well.

Joel John wants to make life easier for agriculture only because he is involved in agriculture personally. Without sustainable water, agriculture dies, as does the future of Arizona. What is he doing? Nothing, because he doesnít know what to do, nor does he seem to care.

Itís time to replace ďone-trick ponyĒ Joel John in LD4 with a House Representative ready to tackle Arizonaís water crisis with proposed legislation his first week in office. LD4 and Arizona deserve Aram Katz in the Arizona House.

Please support Aram Katz by signing his petition to get him on the 2022 ballot: https://apps.azsos.gov/apps/election/eps/op/

Please support the Katz for AZ House Campaign by contributing to ActBlue: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/aram2022


Thank you for reading. Letís work together to solve all of Arizonaís impeding issues and problems.

1. This doesn't seem like a possible solution at all:

develop pipelines from areas with more water into Arizona and the Southwest would solve our problems.

2. if they can do it with the national electrical grid, they can with water as well

If seven states can draw from one river, we can all lobby for this infrastructure.

If California were incentivized to go the desalinization route like Israel does, a lot of problems would and could be minimized. Getting that 40 million population off the Colorado River when they have a huge ocean next to them would help as well.

Again, another Colorado Protocol needs to worked on, or at least updated, and all SW states could and should work to nationalize the water pipelines like they with electrical lines.

I'd be out in front fighting for that.
