KPNO water catchment area


About this image

An aerial view of a rarely seen part of Kitt Peak, but nevertheless a vital one. The water catchment system provides the entire water supply for all of Kitt Peak, and the maintenance shops and their staff keep all of the equipment functioning. A variety of aerial views can be found under the facilities category.
