Plans & Reports
Each year, the AWBA prepares an Annual Plan of Operation and an Annual Report. The Annual Plan of Operation is prepared in the last quarter of each year and adopted by the Commission at its December Regular Quarterly Meeting. The Annual Report is prepared for the previous year, adopted by the Commission at its June Regular Quarterly Meeting and submitted to the Governor's Office and the Offices of the President of the Senate the Speaker of the House no later than July 1 of each year.
The Annual Report details the AWBA's activities, includes a summary of the water stored, progress made on satisfying the state's tribal obligations and a ten-year plan describing how the AWBA will meet its future obligations.
In 2018, the AWBA stored 38,000 acre-feet of excess CAP water within the Phoenix, Pinal and Tucson Active Management Areas (AMAs). Additionally, the AWBA stored 13,500 acre-feet of Nevada's unused Colorado River allocation. The AWBA also purchased 13,100 acre-feet of LTS credits and accrued a total of 44,000 acre-feet of firming credits on Community lands.

In 2020, there is no excess CAP water available for AWBA storage. The AWBA will continue to explore alternative methods, including purchases of long-term storage credits or firming credits, to make progress on its Indian and M&I firming goals. The 2020 Annual Plan of Operation provides for the development of an estimated 35,600 acre-feet of credits.
