Gov. Doug Ducey recently appointed Vice Mayor Mark Clark as a commissioner to the Arizona Water Banking Authority.
The Arizona state senate confirmed Clark’s appointment at the end of March.
AWBA was established in 1996 to increase the utility of the state’s Colorado River entitlement and to develop long-term storage credits for the state. AWBA stores or “banks” unused Colorado River water for use in times of shortage in order to secure water supplies for Arizona.
Clark’s appointment fills a seat left vacant when former Mohave County Sup. Steve Moss was appointed to Superior Court.
