Tucson is located in the Sonoran Desert, a place rich with unique plant and animal species and a high quality of life, but with few natural water resources. We receive 12 inches or less of rainfall per year.
In order to provide the growing Tucson metropolitan area with a safe and reliable water supply, Tucson Water must utilize water from various sources. The topics below have additional information about these water resources.
