Thanks to President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, $8.5 million will be allocated to Arizona for an ongoing study on water conservation. The funding will be used for the Verde Reservoirs Sediment Mitigation Project Feasibility Study, which could restore the storage capacity lost to sedimentation in reservoirs that provide water to the Phoenix metropolitan area.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law was one of the most significant investments in water infrastructure in the nation’s history.
