Water Stops Flowing To Houses In Drought-Stricken West

  • Hundreds of homes in the Arizona desert are expected to run out of water by the end of the year, according to NBC News.
  • Around 500 homes in the Rio Verde Foothills, in Maricopa County, will begin running out of water starting on January 1, 2023. Many houses in the unincorporated community were built without complying with Arizona’s 100-year water supply requirement.
  • Additionally, instead of having their own water system, residents of the Rio Verde Foothills rely on private wells or have their water trucked up from the nearby city of Scottsdale.
