The purpose of the Cochise Conservation and Recharge Network (CCRN) is to implement a regional network of water-management projects that meet the long-term needs of the Sierra Vista Subwatershed. These projects include conservation easements to preclude future groundwater pumping as well as constructed basins to recharge storm water and treated effluent that replenish the regional aquifer and help sustain river flows. The vision is a flowing San Pedro River, the conservation of water resources and a vibrant local economy. CCRN was formed 2015 by the City of Sierra Vista, Cochise County, Hereford Natural Resource Conservation District, and The Nature Conservancy. The City of Bisbee joined in 2016.
Accommodating novice to expert GIS users, the Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment (AGWA) tool is a GIS-based hydrologic modeling tool that uses commonly available GIS data layers to fully parameterize, execute, and spatially visualize results for the RHEM, KINEROS2, KINEROS-OPUS, SWAT2000, and SWAT2005 watershed runoff and erosion models.
A variety of partners conduct wet/dry mapping on the San Pedro to monitor changes in surface flow, with annual surveys conducted since 1999. Maps and reports are available for download from The Nature Conservancy.
