Arizona says developers don't have enough groundwater to build in desert west of Phoenix



Developers planning to build homes in the desert west of Phoenix don't have enough groundwater supplies to move forward with their plans, a state modeling report found. 

Plans to construct homes for people located west of the White Tank Mountains will require alternative sources of water to proceed as the state grapples with a historic megadrought.

Amid a nationwide housing shortage, developers are flooding Arizona with plans to build homes even as drought conditions intensify and water shortages worsen.
