Coconino Plateau Water Advisory Council (CPWAC)
The Coconino Plateau Water Advisory Council was formed out of an increasing awareness of the impacts of drought and growth on our water supply. The need to understand the current and future needs for water in our area and what can be done to ensure an adequate supply brought the members together. The agencies and organizations that are now working toward finding answers to our water issues are also dedicated to protecting the health and beauty of our environment. The Grand Canyon Trust was a co-founder of the CPWAC.
