"This contract will partner an Arizona small business with Reclamation to maintain and upgrade the aging groundwater wellfields in the Yuma area," Reclamation Commissioner Michael L. Connor said today. "We are working to ensure these wellfields will continue to operate efficiently and effectively in the future in order to further our mission to support the Yuma agricultural industry that brings billions of dollars to the economy and provides healthy food for our families."
Yuma’s agricultural system is one of the most efficient in the world. About 90 percent of all the leafy vegetables grown in the United States from November through March are grown in the area. YAO manages groundwater levels through a system of drainage ditches and numerous high-capacity production wells integrated with salinity control systems.
AZCA Drilling & Pump is an emerging small business that provides a variety of pumping products and services for many industries across the United States.
