Montezuma Well is a detached unit of Montezuma Castle National Monument, located 18km north. It was formed by the collapse of an immense underground cavern. Two cave passage bring water to the spring, which produces more than 5.6 million liters per day. Prehistoric Hohokam and Sinaguan cultures made use of this water source to irrigate their crops. Along the spring are the remains of their irrigation canals.
