Much of the recoverable precipitation in Arizona originates from snowpacks occurring in the ponderosa pine type of the State. Water yields from these snowpacks provide surface water supplies to Phoenix and central Arizona, where groundwater tables are declining. Forest management practices aimed at increasing water yields may be one alternative for relieving water shortages in this area. Source information was obtained for the preparation of forest management guidelines designed to increase snowpack water yield. (Author)
