It’s hard to enforce water rules when someone else owns the water.

Camp Verde Community Development Director Mike Jenkins requested clarification from Town Council members  April 4 regarding the direction they would like the Planning and Zoning Commission to take when developing the town’s water usage policy for the general plan to be adopted by Dec. 1, 2014.Four years ago, the Camp Verde Planning and Zoning Commission was tasked with creating a water conservation program, a sensible move for a community in a desert climate.

The commission members put their heads together and thought about what form a conservation program should take. They questioned if the town should enact a water ordinance.

Community Development Director Mike Jenkins said the commission looked at different water rules enforced by surrounding communities.
