Mohave County supervisors may continue conservation efforts on county-owned farmland | Local News Stories

For six years, the Mohave County Board of Supervisors has used 15 acres of Mojave Valley farmland to leverage voting power on water issues in western Arizona. Now, that land could be used to address the biggest water problem ever.

Mohave County has been participating in the Mohave Valley Irrigation and Drainage District System Conservation Plan since February of last year under an agreement with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to address the ongoing Colorado River shortage. Next week, the county will vote on whether to continue participating in the program.
