Humane Borders has a 20-year history of installing and maintaining water stations in remote areas of the Arizona desert. It was formed in 2000 at First Christian, Disciples of Christ, Church in Tucson. They locate the water stations on public or private land with the full permission of the land owners. Volunteers travel on a regular basis to check on the water stations, monitor usage and refill the water barrels. Other volunteers work closely with the Pima County Medical Examiner and law enforcement agencies to record the exact locations and any known information about
those who die in the desert.
