Projects in Design

When a project has been approved in the budget by the City Council, it moves from the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) list into the active Design phase.  The Design phase is an exploratory process where City staff identifies key elements of the project, researches information needed to implement the project, hires and Engineering firm to lead the design team and solicits public input.

The design of a project is a very important first step to identify construction elements to promote the timely delivery of the project with as little impact to neighboring properties as possible.

A Project Manager (PM) is assigned to each project on the CIP list.  The PM is the point of contact for the public and is responsible for guiding the engineering firm through the design process until a complete set of plans are approved by the City.

As the plans are developed, they go through phases of completion.  These phases are known as:

  • 15% plans (conceptual)
  • 30% plans (preliminary design)
  •  60% plans (design development)
  • 90% plans (pre-final design)
  • 100% plans (completed final design)

Public input on the design of a project is typically done around the 30%-60% plan phases.  A community open house meeting may be held by the City and design engineer to explain the project, answer questions and get input from the public.  By this time, enough information is known about the project to answer questions and have a good understanding of the needs of the project.

When the design of the project is complete, it will move on to the construction phase.  View projects in the “Construction” phase.

  • Updated on 9/4/20

    The City’s original Master Area Drainage Study (MADS) was completed in 1999. The new MADS will reflect the significant changes in drainage by accounting for development, newer/better topographic data, and more accurate NOAA Atlas 14 rainfall data. The new flood study will determine the flow magnitudes, flow depth and flow velocities for the 10-, 100- and 500-year flooding events. The study will utilize a new 2-dimensional model to update the hydrology and hydraulics and be considered best available data to be used for all future planning studies, design projects and flood risk assessments.

    The revised flood hazard mapping studies will provide residents and business owners more accurate regulatory floodplain limits, which helps to determine the need for flood insurance.

  • Updated on 9/4/20

    The City will be replacing an existing PVC water main on Equestrian Way in The Ranch subdivision due to a significant water main break that occurred in July 2020. The asphalt was also damaged to the extent that the street will be re-paved once the water main construction is complete. The project will include installation of new Ductile Iron water main on Equestrian Way and Equestrian Circle. This project is fast tracked and construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2020.

  • Updated on 9/4/20

    The project is primarily located within the City’s Fleet Maintenance Facility. The existing gravity sewer system in the area is aged, undersized and has a history of backups and sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) which affect adjacent properties. Additionally, portions of the sewer are inaccessible for maintenance because they are located below buildings and structures. This project will relocate the gravity sewer system to be located primarily on City property or within Right-of-Way. One small gravity sewer extension will need to be considered in a private driveway to maintain all existing sewer service connections. No portion of active sewer will be remaining under a building or structure after completion of the relocation.

    The City of Prescott Water Production Facility, located in the Town of Chino Valley, is the City’s primary source for water production. This project will replace the existing water booster facility in Chino Valley and will build the new intermediate pump station and tanks located near the Prescott Airport. This project will create a reduction in transmission pipeline pressure, improve production redundancy and provide additional storage capacity closer to Prescott.

    City of Prescott Water Production Facility (Chino Valley):

    The existing booster station is located in the Town of Chino Valley at the City of Prescott’s Water Production Facility, 251 N. State Route 89 (APN 306-23-077C). This project will consist of design and replacement of the City of Prescott water booster facility (buildings, boosters, electrical, controls). The facilities were originally built in the 1940’s and updates have been made to the facilities throughout the years to keep pace with the growing demand.  The current facility is undersized to meet future demands and the existing equipment has reached the end of its service life.  The facility replacement will ensure safe and reliable water supply to the City of Prescott service area. It is anticipated that the new booster station facility will have a firm pumping capacity of 14.0 MGD. By completing this project, the City will be able to provide additional reliability through higher efficiency and modernized equipment (buildings, electrical components, piping).

    Intermediate Pump Station Facility:

    The new intermediate pump station site is anticipated to be located about 1 mile north of Pioneer Parkway and 1 mile west of Willow Creek Road on currently undeveloped land; the site will be accessed from the east from Willow Creek Road. This project will provide the infrastructure to supply required redundancy to the existing water delivery system. This increases the overall reliability of the City’s water supply system by allowing the airport production wells to support the entire water system. Additionally, growth in north Prescott requires that a second pump station be constructed at the Intermediate Pump Station Facility that serves the surrounding pressure zone, Zone 110. The storage capacity required to meet fire demand and development growth needs have been determined by the City’s water model. The anticipated storage required for the intermediate pump station facility is 10 MG with the ability to expand to 15 MG. The intermediate pump station and the Zone 110 pump stations are anticipated to have a pumping capacity of 17.5 MGD and 8.4 MGD, respectively. Both pump station capacities will be evaluated further and confirmed during design.

    This project will install a new gravity sewer system to replace the existing force main where the City currently pumps wastewater along Willow Lake Rd to the Prescott Lakes Regional Lift Station. The project will also allow the City to remove the Willow Lake Regional Lift Station, the elimination of the lift station will help to reduce the annual maintenance cost of operating the City’s sanitary sewer system.

  • Updated on 9/4/20

    This project will consist of relocating the existing Zone 7 pump station that feeds pressure zones east of Prescott Lakes Parkway, eastward to the new 1.5 MG water storage tank for pressure Zone 56, and relocated and upgraded to meet existing and future domestic and fire flow demands for this area. This project will include installation of new pumps, associated controls and appurtenances, and an above-ground building enclosure. This project will be constructed concurrent with the installation of the new Zone 56 1.5 MG tank and piping.


  • Updated on 9/4/20

    The project generally consists of replacing two existing 200,000 gallon water storage tanks with a single 1.5 million gallon water storage tank. The project includes replacing the existing Mingus Pump Station to meet demands and upsize the pipeline between the pump station and the new tank.



  • Updated on 9/4/20

    The Zone 56 Tank and Piping Project generally consists of constructing a new partially buried 1.5 million gallon pre-stressed concrete tank to be located north of Highway 69, and west of York Motors. This tank will replace the existing 100,000 gallon welded steel tank located in Prescott Canyon Estates. An additional project element will include removing and replacing approximately 4,300 lineal feet of existing 8-inch CIP water line with a new 16-inch DIP water line.
