Orchards, ca. 1915

In the first half of the twentieth century, the canal system transported water for agricultural use in the Valley, including water used for widespread citrus orchards, as seen here with Camelback Mountain in the background. Agriculture continues to use a high percentage of water in Central Arizona.
