A majority of the City water comes from six (6) wells in Chino Valley. The water is pumped into a five (5) million gallon reservoir at the Chino Production Facility, and from there pumps convey it to Prescott via high-pressure water mains. Thirty (30) water storage tanks/reservoirs and thirty-eight (38) booster stations are maintained to provide water throughout more than sixty-six (66) pressure zones that serve the City. The thirty (30) storage tanks contain up to thirty-four (34) million gallons of storage. Two (2) additional wells have been drilled near the City Airport to meet existing and future demands in the area. The City's water quality is excellent, requires very little treatment, and is monitored daily to ensure the highest quality.
The City's water distribution system begins in Chino Valley and water is distributed to homes and businesses through approximately 500 miles of water pipes that are maintained. The Public Works Utilities Division also maintains fire hydrants, valves, meters and manages a cross-connection prevention program.
The Meter Reading Division of the Public Works Department performs meter reading and customer service for approximately 23,000 customers on a monthly basis.
