Sedona AZ (October 1, 2014) – Keep Sedona Beautiful, Inc., at its Preserving the Wonder™ Speaker Series on Wednesday, October 8 at 5:30 pm, will feature Jamee Reddell, who will speak about Water Rights in the Verde Valley.
Do you know your water rights? As water resources in the Verde Valley become increasingly stressed by population growth and large corporations are doing all they can to establish their water rights, it is keenly important that homeowners understand and claim their water rights now, before it is too late. Join KSB for an informative evening to learn about the adjudication of water rights within the Verde River Watershed.
The evening includes complimentary appetizers donated by El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano and refreshments provided by Keep Sedona Beautiful (KSB).
Jamee Reddell has over 12 years extensive experience and awareness in water rights issues and procedures. This includes historic water rights research and extensive knowledge on Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) submittal procedures and requirements with respect to well registration filings and surface water claim filings. For 10 years she has been an officer on the board of directors for Verde Valley Water Users, Inc. (“VVWU”), an organization that has worked to protect Verde Valley area water rights since 1984. VVWU is the only non-profit organization dedicated to protecting well and surface water rights for their membership and individuals within the Verde Valley.
Over 20 years ago, the Salt River Project filed lawsuits asking the courts to determine water rights for the use of “surface water” in the Gila River System which includes the Verde River and its tributaries. In response to this threat to continued use of water in our community, VVWU was incorporated to inform and assist the membership in matters pertaining to the general adjudication.
Keep Sedona Beautiful welcomes the community and visitors alike to its monthly Preserving the Wonder™ Speaker Series, which takes place at its historic Pushmataha Center on 360 Brewer Road in Sedona.
Held the second Wednesday of each month from September to June, KSB’s Speaker Series presents an interesting diversity of programs relevant to the unique environment of our region. Keep Sedona Beautiful, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that, by acting through the stewardship of its members and volunteers, is committed to protecting and sustaining the unique scenic beauty and natural environment of the Greater Sedona Area.
