Buster: Tough decisions are going to be made without the information to make those decisions

A seven-year study into the amount of water in the Detrital, Hualapai and Sacramento Valley basins may be in jeopardy. Representatives from the Arizona Department of Water Resources and the U.S. Geological Survey gave an update on the progress of the survey, which was to be completed in 2012. "We came today because we may not be able to do this in January," said ADWR Regional Water Planning Division Manager Thomas Whitmer.
