Factory Parts "The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best." ~ Epictetus Quartzsite, AZ - The Town of Quartzsite proposes to lease and transfer 1,070 acre-feet (af) of its Arizona fourth priority Colorado River water en- titlement to the Central Arizona Water Conservation District (CA WCD). The water is currently unused by Quartzsite. Under the proposal, the 1,070 af of Colorado River water will be leased and transferred to CA WCD for use in fulfi lling the CA WCD's statutory groundwater replenishment authority and responsibilities. Under the Lease Agreement between Quartzsite and CA WCD, the 1,070 af of Colorado River water is proposed to be leased for an initial term of 25 years with the ability to extend for an additional 25 years. This proposed lease and transfer would change the place of use as- sociated with the existing Colorado River water entitlement. The Arizona Department of Water Resources (Department) will evaluate the proposed transfer in accordance with the Department's January 17, 2014, Policy and Procedures for Transferring an Entitlement of Colorado River water (Colorado River Transfer Policy). The public is invited to comment on this proposed transfer of a Colorado River entitlement.
