Arizona Theme Day: Water

My dad used to call this “the back side of water”. It was a little joke he used whenever we were looking through a waterfall.

This was taken behind the waterfall at the Arizona Falls Park that I featured back in April. Arizona Falls is a joint project between the city, the Commission on the Arts, and Salt River Project, one of our two main power sources in the Phoenix area. In fact, this waterfall and two others at this same location are producing hydroelectric power that is transferred into the Salt River Project electrical grid. This small station produces enough electricity to power 150 homes.

Water is such an important resource for Arizona where much of the state is desert that I’m going to show you another water-related topic tomorrow.
