Mesa Arizona will be blessed with a very very big wave poll. The biggest wave pool in the United States. The whole kapooow is called Waveyard and will include the largest surfing wave pool in the U.S., a multi-channel white water rafting and kayaking course, scuba diving and snorkeling lagoon, wakeboarding park, massive sand beach, and a resort hotel with an indoor water park. Yikes! :)
So why is putting a water park in a desert a good idea? Because in the end, it will not use all that much water. Annual estimated water usage at Waveyard will be directly on par with an 18-hole golf course (144 million gallons per year).
Arizona surfers, cheers!
