Old Mine Water: Irrigation Source for Farms in Arizona

Pasta on your plate may come from Arizona wheat that has been grown with water recycled out of the historic Magma copper mine! When the Magma mine shut down, Resolution Copper built a water plant to collect and clean mine water that would otherwise simply accumulate in the old underground mine workers and not be used. The treated water is now being used for irrigation in the area; a great boon for the Arizona desert communities. See a short video here.
