Town lifts Level 2 Water Restrictions

The Town of Prescott Valley on Tuesday, July 10, lifted its Level 2 Water Conservation restrictions this week after it brought several wells back online after repairs.

The water conservation measures went into effect on July 3, after a combination of major mechanical failures and record water usage due to hot and dry weather conditions.  The water conservation alert asked residents to irrigate on alternate days along with other measures to reduce water demand until the wells could be brought back into service.

Town Utilities Director Neil Wadsworth this week said two of the wells are now back online, with a third scheduled back into service shortly.

The water restrictions do not mean that the Town is running out of water.  The overall water supply condition of the aquifer remains sufficient to meet 100-year demands and beyond for local developments as determined by the Arizona Department of Water Resources.

Water demand is about 12 percent higher this year than last year, which represents the highest water demand in the history of Prescott Valley.  The installation of new wells planned for this year will alleviate this concern in future years.

Please direct any questions you may have to Neil Wadsworth, Utilities Director at 928-759-3078.
