City Construction Projects

Are you curious about what construction projects are taking place throughout Prescott? Well, you've come to the right place! Below you will find a list of construction projects that are currently underway as well as those projects that are still pending.

For information on the status of construction projects please call the City of Prescott Public Works Department at 928-777-1130.

Completed Projects

During 2010, the City contracted with a professional engineering firm to complete the Sundog Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and Airport Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) Capacity and Technology Master Plans. The study revealed that wastewater BOD and TSS strength at both treatment plants have nearly tripled since the most recent upgrade (1998) lowering the treatment capacity for the Airport WRF to 1.2 MGD. Currently, average daily flows to the plant are 1.1 MGD; therefore plant expansion is necessary to handle committed capacities and projected growth in the area. The treatment capacity recommended for the next phase of the Airport WRF was established at 3.75 MGD. Three phases are recommended from the Master Plan with a total recommended build-out capacity of 9.6 or 15 MGD (dependant on the City's decision for one centralized treatment plant in the future).

The City has completed contracts with Water Works Engineers for the design of the expansion project and PCL/Fann Environmental Joint Venture as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR). The final design plans were completed in early Fall of 2012. The CMAR contract for construction was awarded by City Council on October 23, 2012 and the notice to proceed for construction was given on November 12, 2012.

The project was completed in Fall 2015.

The project at this time is only for the drilling of a monitoring well inside the City of Prescott Zone 12 Tank Tract located in the Granite Dells Estate Development. The objective of the monitoring well is to characterize the underlying aquifer by collection of the borehole drilled cutting, performing geophysical logging surveys, and zonal water quality results.

The Rodeo Grounds drain 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 project construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in April 2016.
