TAKE ACTION! Benson development could suck San Pedro River Dry
TAKE ACTION! Massive Benson development could suck Kartchner Caverns and San Pedro River Dry
More data and study is needed to fully understand the impacts that Villages at Vigneto, a city-sized development proposed on 12,000 acres of private land located southwest of Benson, Arizona, would have on our community, water and natural resources. As proposed, this Tuscany-styled development would include 27,760 new homes, commercial developments, golf courses, parks, vineyards, lakes, orchards, resorts, and an extensive road and utility network. The development is intended to attract up to 70,000 new residents. Groundwater pumping would increase from 833 acre-feet per year to an estimated 10,000, and could have significant impacts to our water resources, wildlife, and quality of life.
