Above is a rendering of the proposed project at Highway 179 and West Mallard Drive in Sedona.

East Sedona Water Storage Facility Project

Arizona Water Company is dedicated to providing and maintaining quality service to our customers throughout the Sedona area. We are proposing this storage project In order to make sure that the surrounding community’s water demands, water supply sources, storage, and booster pump station requirements are being reliably and adequately met.

After years of careful consideration, we are proposing to build the East Sedona Water Storage Facility, a water storage and pumping facility that will help ensure the same level of fire protection and water service reliability that customers in the rest of our system enjoy.

The site we have selected for this facility is a nearly one-acre lot located at the intersection of West Mallard Drive and Highway 179.

The project will include the following facilities:
  • Water storage tank with up to a 1.5 million-gallon capacity
  • Most of the tank will not be visible because it will be built underground. Operational facilities will be built on top of the reservoir in an architectural style similar to surrounding homes
  • A booster pump station capable of delivering up to 3000 gallons per minute.

We look forward to working with our neighbors and other community stakeholders on this project. We will be using this web page to post relevant documents and updates on the on the planning and development process, so please check this site often.

9.25.2017Thursday, October 12, 2017 is Date for Second Community Meeting to Discuss Underground Water Storage Tank in East Sedona

On Thursday, October 12, 2017, Arizona Water Company will host a second community meeting to discuss details of its proposal to build a 1 million to 1.5 million gallon drinking water reservoir on property it owns near the intersection of Highway 179 and West Mallard Drive.

East Sedona Water Storage Facility Community Meeting
Thursday, October 12, 6 pm to 8 pm
Sedona United Methodist Church
110 Indian Cliffs Road
Sedona, AZ

At our first community meeting in March, residents raised a number of questions and we have done our best to answer them all. In addition, the Mystic Hills Homeowners Association’s Design Review Board drafted a set of questions, which have also been answered.

    As a reminder, the project will include:
  • Water storage tank with a capacity to hold between 1 million and 1.5 million gallons.
  • Most of the tank will be underground and not visible to neighbors or drivers on Highway 179
  • Operating equipment, including booster pumps capable of delivering 3,000 gallons per minute, will be inside a building on top of the tank that will be designed to look like neighboring homes.

At this upcoming meeting, we will present more detail about construction techniques and other technical issues that are of concern to some of the residents. In addition, we have been working to schedule a meeting with the Mystic Hills Design Review Board members to discuss the project further, and we hope to be able to report on that meeting as well.

2.3.2017Arizona Water Company Seeks to Build Underground Water Storage Tank in East Sedona.

On January 17, 2017, Arizona Water Company filed an application with the City of Sedona for a conditional use permit in order to build a 1.0 to 1.5 million gallon drinking water reservoir on property it owns at Highway 179 and West Mallard Drive.

The reservoir will be almost entirely underground, with some support structures built on top of the reservoir in an architectural style of similar to the neighboring homes. The goal is to make the reservoir virtually invisible to passersby.

Arizona Water Company will be hosting a community meeting for the neighbors and other stakeholders within a few weeks. We will make sure the neighbors are kept up to date regarding the status of the meeting and other related matters.
