CAP makes presentation on water plan By DK McDONALD  ….the Daily News ……Nov 8, 20 Top of FormBottom of Form ….

MOHAVE VALLEY — About 120 area residents squeezed into the Mohave Valley Irrigation & Drainage District office Tuesday to hear a presentation by a Central Arizona Groundwater Replenishment District representative regarding the transfer of water rights from farms in Mohave Valley for use in the Phoenix and Tucson areas.

Perri Benemelis, Central Arizona Groundwater Replenishment District water supply program manager, offered MVIDD board members and residents an explanation of CAGRD’s statutory mission, as well as an introduction to the rotational fallowing program that CAGRD hopes to implement within MVIDD.

Vince Vasquez, MVIDD Division II director, excused himself from the presentation because of a conflict of interest; he works for Water Property Investor, LLC, which is selling land to CAGRD. 

The sale of seven properties to CAGRD is contingent on modifiying a current MVIDD resolution to allow water to move out of the district, Benemelis said. The closing of the sale is scheduled for mid-February.

MVIDD Resolution No. 90-01, passed in 1989 and revised in 2008, prohibits the transfer of contracted water outside of the water district’s boundaries.
