The Navajo Generating Station in Page, Ariz. near the Utah border provides energy to move surface water from the Colorado River through the 336-mile-long Central Arizona Project canal system for agriculture, industrial, and municipal users.
The CAP delivers about 400,000 acre feet of surface water to central Arizona farms annually.
Irrigation water is the lifeblood of Arizona agriculture.
