Projects in Design Phase

Per the Tenney Ranch Development Agreement, a detention basin is to be designed in association with the Tenney Ranch development by the City in the southern portion of Acker Park. City Public Works Staff will need to review the hydrology for the area and development and design the regional detention basin. Coordination will be needed with the Acker Parker Board of Trustees regarding the amount of land needed for the basin and the design characteristics. Public outreach and meetings are required (a minimum of two meetings, one with the Acker Park Board of Trustees). The City is currently in preliminary design of the regional detention basin.

The design is anticipated to be completed in the Summer of 2016.

Lyon Engineering was awarded the design contract in January 2015 to complete the 100-year flood study of Albersons Wash, from the north side of the State Route 69 culvert near Costco to approximately 1.5 miles downstream, directly upstream of the crossing at Rose Quartz Drive (See Vicinity Map). The study will include a detailed evaluation of the culvert crossings at Hummingbird Way, Hornet Drive and Sunrise Boulevard and determine if the culverts can be replaced, repaired or are currently functional. The study will also determine if there are any structures within a flood hazard area that can be mitigated by roadway crossing improvements. After the initial flood study and culverts evaluation is complete, the consultant and City staff will conduct at least one public meeting with the Yavapai Hills Subdivision Homeowner's Association to present the project findings and gather input from nearby residences.

Upon completion of the initial study, staff anticipates awarding a separate contract for a detailed design of the proposed drainage improvements for the area.

The project is to design the upgrade to the existing Prescott Resort Pump Station that feeds Pressure Zone 56 from 740 gallons per minute to 1750 gallons per minute. The project has been proposed based on the City Water Distribution Model calling for a new Zone 56 reservoir to be installed at a higher elevation than the existing Prescott Canyon Reservoir with additional capacity. Per the water model master plan, the new Zone 56 reservoir and upgraded Prescott Resort Pump Station will provide required pressures, residential /commercial fire flows to the entire Zone 56 area, and will enhance pressures to the other surrounding water system zones. The project was awarded to Kelley-Wise Engineer and the pump station design has been completed. The project has experienced a delay in obtaining needed easements with the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe, which was partially due to impact fees negotiations. Based on updated discussions the project will include upsizing the water line from the pump station to Prescott Resort to provide adequate fire flows. Project coordination between the Yavapai Indian Tribe - Prescott Resort and Casino will be required to limit any disruptions to the facility.

Staff is anticipating a contract amendment with Kelley-Wise Engineering to update the plans this Fall. Construction is dependent on obtaining the required easement, prior to advertising the project for bid.

Questions regarding the project should be addressed to the City Project Manager, Jeff Low at (928) 777-1130 or email to jeff.low@prescott-az.gov.

The Rodeo Grounds is a 34.61-acre site owned by the City and leased to Prescott Frontier Days (PFD), an Arizona non-profit organization. PFD hosts the Prescott Frontier Days Rodeo every year in July, known as the "World's Oldest Rodeo". In addition to the week-long rodeo in July, the Rodeo Grounds is used for other equestrian and livestock events for six months out of the year, primarily on weekends between May and October. The Rodeo Grounds drains to Miller Creek, a waterway listed as water quality impaired for E. coli bacteria by ADEQ. Miller Creek is a tributary to Granite Creek, which is also listed as water quality impaired for E. coli bacteria and Dissolved Oxygen (DO).

Due to the nature of the activities taking place at the Rodeo Grounds, this site is considered a potential pollutant "hot spot." Livestock wastes can have detrimental impacts on water quality. Livestock manure contains nutrients, like Nitrogen and Phosphorus, which may contribute to the water quality impairment downstream in Watson Lake (pH, DO, Nitrogen, and Phosphorus). Livestock manure can also contribute pathogens, including viruses, parasites, and bacteria such as fecal coliform and E. coli. E. coli in a water body is an indicator of fecal contamination, representing a potential risk to public health. Miller Creek is a tributary of Granite Creek; both creeks are listed as impaired for E. coli. Sediment is another pollutant that may be contributed by the Rodeo Grounds because of the extent of unpaved surfaces on the site. Excess sediment has many potential water quality impacts, including the transportation of other pollutants, such as nutrients and bacteria, which are problems in the Upper Granite Creek Watershed.

The Prescott Rodeo Grounds Runoff and Sediment Control Project proposes to address sediment and other pollutants (nutrients, E. coli) that may contribute to water quality impairments in Miller Creek, Granite Creek and Watson Lake by managing the runoff from the site. A series of sediment and water quality basins would be installed in two perimeter locations to intercept drainage, capture and contain sediment, and slow and filter the runoff before discharging directly to Miller Creek through a 36" culvert.

The Prescott Rodeo Grounds Runoff and Sediment Control Project will contribute to the larger goal of water quality improvement in the watershed and assist the City in meeting Wasteload Allocations (WLAs) defined in the ADEQ Draft Watson Lake Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and the Draft Upper Granite Creek Watershed E. coli TMDL. The project will reduce the discharge of sediment and sediment-related pollutants to Miller Creek from the Prescott Rodeo Grounds by providing a settling basin to capture sediment and a series of stabilized water quality basins that will promote filtration before discharging the site.

The City has obtained a $90,000 grant from ADEQ toward construction of the sediment reduction basin. With the project the City is responding to a recommendation from ADEQ to address potential pollutant contributions from City properties under the City's Arizona Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (AZPDES) Small MS4 (stormwater) permit. Since there are now five impaired water bodies, with another pending designation (Willow Lake), municipal stormwater discharges to impaired waterways are being examined. ADEQ believes this site to be a significant contributor of pollutants. While the Rodeo Grounds is not considered a municipal operation, the City owns the property and, because the PFD rodeo is such an important part of the community and its history, the City is seeking to ensure that the site is in compliance with all state and federal regulations. The City has been working with ADEQ to address water quality issues since the 2012 MS4 Compliance Audit, and, more recently with the Draft Watson Lake TMDL and Granite Creek TMDLs. This project will demonstrate Prescott's commitment to protecting water quality.

The City is completing the design of the project in-house. The design is anticipated to be completed the Spring of 2016, with construction anticipated in Spring/Summer 2016.
