The Arizona State Prison Complex in Yuma is currently employing water conservation measures after dual pump failures have limited the availability to draw from wells on-site. The prison has limited water service to housing units to conserve available water resources. The Dakota, La Paz, and Cibola Units do not have inmate showers, sinks, toilets, or laundry in service at this time. The Cocopah and Cheyenne Units have water service for drinking water, sinks, toilets, and evaporative cooling, but showers and laundry are not available.
