Re: Whoa, whoa is our plight!

A couple things about the misleading article. First, the AZ Dept of Water Resources (ADWR) will not allow valley cities to further develop without a "100 year assured water supply". Cities must prove they can supply water for the next 100 years. There is water available to support growth. Just very ...

Re: New forest thinning contract awarded

Any decent contractor would know exactly what the "process" is, how long the timelines are, and the costs involved. All part of the pre-bid homework.

You might consider the Horseshoe trailhead parking area. It's behind the health club north of the Gateway TH.

Re: Miller Creek Trail, Happy Valley

The trail begins at the fence. Stay left once you leave Mescal Rd. There is room for several cars to park near the fence/trailhead.

Re: Pinals now shut down for the summer

Re: 3-Day / 2-Night Backpack Suggestion for April?

My 2 cents. Go down SK because it's the shorter route. Take very little water. Fill up on water at phantom ranch. Camp at clear creek the first night. Play around the area day two, but camp on the way back to phantom the second night to save on the distance hiking out the last day. Start very early ...

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Roosevelt lake is up 1.07 feet since Saturday. The lake is 33.58 square miles. There are 640 acres per sq mile. There are 325,851 gallons per acre foot of water. Rounded off that comes to 7.49 billion gallons of flow into the lake since Saturday. Impressive. The lake is only up 1%. It holds quite a ...

Ended up with 1 1/8 inches after the last cell came through this afternoon. People were boating in the storm water retention basin.
