slide20
Bill Williams (ADEQ lead)
  • The Bill Williams River Corridor Steering Committee is an existing entity that is actively carrying out conservation planning and implementation in the Bill Williams watershed. The Group feels that this effort needs to be encouraged and where possible, strengthened by AZ CRM.

Colorado/Grand Canyon (NRCS lead)

  • There is no single example of coordinated conservation representing the entire Watershed that currently exists. Various groups have limited interests in specific portions of the Watershed. It was mentioned that the Salinity Control Forum is the group that meets regularly and does have an interest over the entire watershed, though this area is only a portion of their entire area of concern. It was agreed that the Arizona Strip, Flagstaff and Lower Mohave County CRM Field Groups need to be reinvigorated to encourage the CRM planning process in this area.
slide21
Little Colorado/San Juan (ADEQ lead)
  • The Little Colorado River Watershed Coordinating Council meets regularly to plan and discuss conservation needs in this area. AZ CRM needs to stay in touch with its effort and assist where it can.

Lower Colorado/Lower Gila (NRCS lead)

  • There is no single example of coordinated conservation representing the entire Watershed that currently exists. The Lower Mohave County CRM Field Group includes a portion of the far north, and is beginning to become reinvigorated in the CRM ranch planning process. Challenges in this watershed include the fact that the water rights at this point are fully appropriated and activity seems to be centered upon operation and maintenance. Other challenges arise from the ephemeral nature of many of the grazing lands in this area and the large tracts of military lands in the southern portion.
slide22
Middle Gila/Agua Fria (NRCS lead)
  • There is no single example of coordinated conservation representing the entire Watershed that currently exists. Various groups have limited interests in specific portions of the Watershed. The Pima/Pinal/Santa Cruz CRM Field Group is effective and active yet covers only the southeast third of this Watershed. The Prescott CRM Field Group covers the north third of this area and it is starting to become effective.

Salt (ADEQ lead)

  • There is no single example of coordinated conservation representing the entire Watershed that currently exists. Various groups have limited interests in specific portions of the Watershed. Representing the western half of the area, the Tonto CRM Field Group represents the most active and widespread CRM effort currently taking place. The rest of the watershed could be represented by a coordinated effort between, the San Carlos and White Mountain Apache Tribes along with a CRM Field Group effort based out of Springerville, which currently does not exist.
slide23
San Pedro/San Bernardino (BLM lead)
  • There are three groups who are actively planning and meeting in this Watershed though individually, each one encompasses only a portion of the whole. Together, the three groups’ areas of interest make up most of the Watershed area. These three groups are the Community Watershed Alliance, Malpai Borderlands Group and the Upper San Pedro Partnership. The work of these Groups should be encouraged and strengthened by AZ CRM.

Santa Cruz (NRCS lead)

  • Two active groups have areas of concern that encompass this Watershed. The two groups are the Friends of the Santa Cruz River and the Pima Association of Governments Watershed Planning Subcommittee. These groups should be encouraged in their conservation efforts where appropriate by AZ CRM.
slide24
Upper Gila (BLM lead)
  • The Gila Watershed Partnership is an active, effective effort towards resource conservation that works in their Watershed area. This group should be encouraged and strengthened by AZ CRM.

Verde (AZG&F lead)

  • The Verde Watershed Association and the Yavapai County Water Advisory Committee are active groups meeting regularly on resource related issues in this Watershed area. These groups need to be encouraged by AZ CRM.
