Development and land use decisions in Arizona are closely bound to water supply, and have always been. Early inhabitants of what is now the Phoenix metropolitan area constructed an elaborate network of canals to support agriculture and community needs—the paths of those ancient canals are occupied today by the canals of the Salt River Project, which has now delivered water for both agricultural and municipal water use for over one hundred years. As Arizona continues to grow, water supply and land use are even more closely bound; in fact, water supply will likely be the dispositive factor in future land use decisions across the state.
