A private water company was interested in evaluating major water supply investments in Arizona; specifically, this client wanted to focus on long-term investments to boost its water supply portfolio.
- Worked with the client to develop mutually agreed-upon criteria for identifying the characteristics that are most and least desirable in a water supply
- Evaluated Colorado River mainstream surface water rights, CAP supplies, LTSCs, and groundwater rights
- Identified uncertainty and risk factors
- For each supply type, identified the physical location and quantity and rated the legal and regulatory obstacles, market activity, long-term value, and environmental considerations
