We looked into purchasing property there and were told that for water, you could purchase a permit from the Salt River Project, pay to drill the well, then they would install a meter on your well and send you a bill for water used.
Today, we are anticipating similar problems in Tx with the large influx of people. There is a Texas State Park which runs thru an area that they are wanting to turn into a reservoir. A reservoir to serve the greater metro areas north of us. So they can continue to wash cars and keep their grass green in summer so they can mow. The restrictions need to be in place first. This is the park ~ it houses an old operating steam train called the Texas State Railroad. A slice of history which will be closing in July for lack of funding and desire for water.
