In response to recent state legislation that prescribes funding for the removal of mesquites through the Arizona Water Protection Fund, LPSWA director Norm "Mick" Meader has developed and released a white paper that compares the relative water use of riparian mesquite woodlands and various other plants and crops. A copy of this report can found at this link:

If you just want to read a short version of the article above, Mr. Meader has also developed a two-sided single-sheet information summary on this topic that was developed for distribution at conferences and community events. This information brochure can be accessed at this link:
