The amount and quality of water in Arizona will play an increasing role in the state's prosperity through activities in agriculture, manufacturing, and municipal sectors. Factors impacting our water use include climate change (in which Arizona is likely to get warmer and drier), increased urbanization, and growth in certain agricultural sectors (leafy greens in Yuma, biofuels). An opportunity for growth exists with under-served stakeholders in Arizona agriculture and municipal resources with engineering needs: Native American and Hispanic farmers and ranchers; urban landowners; and small commercial landscape, turfgrass, and horticultural-related businesses.
