The City of Prescott owns and operates five active wells within the Town of Chino Valley. These wells are the primary source of potable water supply to the City. The production wells in Chino Valley were drilled and equipped between 1947 and 1962. Since the initial installation only one major upgrade has been completed on the wells in 1987. Currently, at several of the well sites the well houses, electrical controls, mechanical equipment’s and HVAC components are beyond their service life.
The City has initiated a Production Well Rehabilitation Program to upgrade the facilities at all five of the Chino Valley well sites, the development of a standardized well site design template was completed prior to improvements and was implemented for the Production Well #5 project, which was completed in 2018 and established the template for the building and site improvements at Production Well #4.
