Water concerns push new Home-Buyers out of Tucson

Some Tucson area buyers are moving out of the city to ensure there are ample water supplies. Groundwater levels have dropped in the center of the Tucson basin by more than 200 feet over the past fifty years.

It’s different just outside of Tucson where many are choosing to build new homes. Red Hawk at J-6 Ranch master-planned community is one place more new home-builders are turning. It’s just a half hour from Tucson in Cochise County.

There, the water is supplied by a private water company, Empirita Water.

The water company holds a Certificate of 100-year water supply guarantee from the Arizona Corporation Commission.  Two wells feed the water supply and the system has two holding tanks, one of which is a backup.  A certified water person, who has the education and experience to oversee the water system, maintains it.  Base water fees are $30 per month.
If you are concerned about your water,  Red Hawk at J-6 Ranch master-planned community is one place more new home builders are considering.
