Hi all,

There are several rivers that flow into Phoenix, Arizona.
These include the Salt River, the Gila River, and the Green River.

Most of Phoenix's water comes from the Salt River Project, and
the Central Arizona Project (Colorado River). These canals are awesome. The Central Arizona Project even pumps water over two mountain ranges. According to Wikipedia, there are 14 pumps that deliver 456 billion gallons every year from the Colorado River to farms and cities in Arizona.

See https://www.phoenix.gov/waterservice...ter-supply-q-a

Phoenix is in the middle of a vast desert.

In My Humble Opinion, as long as populations continue to increase, we will eventually run out of water.

Regards,
Matt
