CAP Water Pipeline Extension
Two 36-inch-wide extension pipes were added to the Central Arizona Project (CAP) pipeline along Old Nogales Highway. Project Renews and JPAR LLC, a water diversion group, combined to bring CAP water to Sahuarita to irrigate Green Valley Pecan fields. The extension was completed by T&T Construction in July 2019.
Santa Cruz River Bridge Replacement
As part of the effort to reduce the amount of local groundwater used for irrigation, a pipeline was built to bring Central Arizona Project (CAP) water to Sahuarita. In 2017, the Pima Mine Road Bridge over the Santa Cruz River was replaced (left). Borderland Construction drilled shafts for the bridge and installed two 36-inch-wide CAP pipelines as part of the new bridge (right). The CAP water that flows into Sahuarita, is recharged into local basins and now is pumped out to help irrigate Green Valley Pecan fields. The irrigation project is a joint operation by Project Renews and JPAR LLC, a water diversion group.
