Have you ever wondered where the Valley’s water comes from? By the time it arrives via canals, Phoenix water has come more than 150 miles from its source. With SRP’s careful planning, our supply is in good hands.
Throughout the year, we partner with our customers on causes that help reforest Northern Arizona, give solar installations to local nonprofits and help limited-income customers pay their energy bills. Each of these programs works by adding a small monthly donation to your SRP bill. We contribute our part to make twice the difference.
Smokey the Bear has always said, “only you can prevent wildfires.” We spoke with an SRP policy expert about why that’s not entirely true.
SRP partners with Tempe to plant over 450 trees, provides free trees to customers and revitalizes our forests.
In Arizona, we depend on winter snow runoff to flow through our northeastern mountains, valleys, rivers and streams — known as a watershed — into our reservoirs. When fire scorches the earth, water runs across the soil faster. This brings more dirt, sediment and other debris into our reservoirs, causing water quality and supply issues for communities across the state.
