The Verde River Basin Partnership is hosting what it describes as “one of the most pivotal meetings about water in the Verde Valley’s History.”

Tony Gioia, with the Verde River Basin PartnershipTitled “Is Our Water Budget Broken?,” the meeting will be used to release a study from the U.S. Geological Survey that looks at the impact of human activity on the Verde Valley’s groundwater and streamflow from 1910 into a projected future in 2109. The meeting is scheduled for 4 p.m. Thursday, April 11 at the Camp Verde Multi-Use Complex auditorium, 37 Camp Lincoln Road.

The study relied, in part, on data from an April 2011, groundwater flow model that looked at water not just in the Verde Valley but throughout the region, including the watersheds of the Verde, Salt, Little Colorado and Colorado rivers and its role in Apache, Coconino, Gila, Mohave, Navajo and Yavapai counties.
