Our Opinion: Similar thoughts

A recent proposal by Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry seems to be right in line with what Gov. Janet Napolitano is proposing.

Huckelberry has proposed that before rezonings are approved for new construction, the effects on groundwater for surrounding areas must be analyzed.

Huckelberry noted that the Arizona Department of Water Resources has jurisdiction over groundwater use. But that agency doesn’t sufficiently analyze the effects of groundwater pumping on surrounding areas.

Huckelberry and Napolitano are on the same page when they talk about giving local governments more authority over development and its impact on water.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
