The Buzz Live in Cochise County

AZPM's popular radio program hit the road to record an episode live at Cochise College in Douglas, AZ.

In 2022, southeastern Arizona voters approved making an area known as the Douglas Basin into an Active Management Area, adding a new set of rules for water use in the area.

The Buzz LIVE! examined the past, present and future of water use within the new AMAs boundaries, and asked if such steps can help the area save its water future. Host Christopher Conover spoke with a panel of experts, residents, and business owners to talk about the new voter-approved rules.

This episode of The Buzz was recorded live at the Cochise College Campus in Douglas, Ariz. on Monday, July 10. At that point, the petition to recall the Douglas AMA vote had been handed in, but signatures had not been verified. AZPM contacted the head of the committee that gathered those signatures, but she declined our invitation to sit on one of the panels. The Arizona Department of Water Resources also declined an invitation to have a representative on a panel.
