Projects Currently Under Construction

This project consists of equipping the well with a new pump house, water transmission main to tie into the new system, and construction of an arsenic treatment plant. The project is located north of the Prescott Airport in ranch land and will have very little impact on the public throughout the duration of construction.

Fann Environmental was the low bidder on this project and has started construction of the access road on November 11th. The access road ties into Ruger Road north of the Ruger manufacturing facility and then crosses to the south side of Bottleneck Wash. Heavy equipment may be encountered on Ruger Road as it enters the construction site.

Park Avenue - The Park Avenue road reconstruction project, from Canyon Springs Road to Gurley Street will include water, sewer, and roadway improvements. The project design and specifications are currently being completed.

Design plans have been provided to APS, CenturyLink, and CableOne and approved for construction. The utility relocations began the week of August 12th. Construction of new underground utilities and pole relocations should take 2 months to complete contingent upon soil and weather conditions encountered during construction.

In coming months, during utility relocation work, acquisition of limited but necessary right-of-way for the project will continue. Property appraisals have been completed, meetings will be scheduled with individual property owners as necessary to provide information in this regard and to begin negotiations for the needed right-of-way.

The City will advertise the construction project once the relocation of third-party utilities and acquisition of rights-of-way are completed.

Questions regarding the project should be addressed to the City Project Manager, Tim Sherwood at (928) 777-1130 or email to

On October 10, 2012 a Flood Study and design project was awarded to JE Fuller Hydrology and Geomorphology for the study of Willow Creek Wash. Based on the flood study, a water main relocation and scour protection plan was developed for the three water mains crossing Willow Creek at approximately 1000 feet downstream of Clearwater Drive.

City staff has reviewed the 100% plans and forwarded comments back to the design engineer. Prior to having the engineer finalize the design, the City will be bidding a design bid for a water stop at two locations in the project area so water valves can be installed. The water line stops are required on the 14-inch steel concrete lined water lined installed in 1948. Staff is currently reviewing proposals for the water line stops and expects to request price proposals by the beginning of September.

Final plans and advertisement for the water line replacement project are expected after the water valves have been installed.

Any questions or comments regarding the project may be emailed to the project Manager, Jeff Low at
