Cap Times: Poll says AZ concerned about water

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

A new poll of 400 Arizonans shows a slight majority, 53 percent, believe the state is in a water crisis, and an even higher percentage say politicians and the media aren’t giving the crisis enough attention.

“It’s fair to say we are not in a crisis, and we are not facing an imminent shortage of water that’s going to have material impact. Does that mean we’re safe from a crisis in the future? No,” said Sarah Porter, director of the Kyl Center for Water Policy at Arizona State University.
