KINGMAN, Ariz. – The Arizona Department of Water Resources will hold a public hearing to take comments regarding Mohave County and the City of Kingman’s request to implement an Irrigation Non-Expansion Area (INA). The meeting will be held at the Mohave County Board of Supervisors Auditorium located at 700 West Beale Street Tuesday, September 20th from 6-8:00 P.M.

Kingman Mayor Ken Watkins said, “Because of the water resource issues we’re facing in Kingman regarding our aquifer, we encourage the community to voice their opinions to ADWR to protect a valuable resource for our area, and stop irresponsible corporate agricultural growth that threatens our groundwater levels.”

The Kingman City Council has provided a letter to ADWR Director Buschatske urging him to take any and all steps necessary to establish and designate an Irrigation Non-Expansion Area (INA) for the Hualapai Basin Aquifer and encourages members of the community to do so as well.
