Rio Verde Foothills residents say recent storm is a drop in the bucket in their water crisis

Flash forward to February 2022, recent rain may ease the state's severe drought a little, but it will do nothing to help the community of the Rio Verde Foothills. "We get so excited when it rains," said Meredith Deangelis, a resident of the Rio Verde Foothills on Feb. 23. Deangelis has joined with others in the foothills to find another water source for their homes. She and others were buying from the city of Scottsdale and having their underground tanks filled monthly.
