Flagstaff Water Services
We Have a New Name: Flagstaff Water Services
The Utilities Division has changed its name to the Water Services Division and you can recognize us by our new Logo! We wanted a name that better conveys what services we provide to our community. Everything we do revolves around “water”, whether its producing drinking water, treating wastewater, providing reclaimed water or managing stormwater, that is ”We are Water”. This change is part of an effort to increase our visibility and keep you better informed about important issues and projects that pertain to water.

The team of professionals in the Water Services Division works hard every day to keep the water flowing to your taps and water flushing from your home! We recycle high-quality reclaimed water to the community for irrigation and other state-approved uses. Nine sections in the Water Services Division ensure great customer service for decades to come: Regulatory Compliance, Engineering, Water Production, Water Distribution, Wastewater Treatment, Wastewater Collections, Stormwater, Water Resources & Conservation, and Administrative.

2016 Water Quality Report
We sample and analyze your drinking water for microbial, inorganic, organic, and radioactive contaminants, along with pesticides and herbicides, on a strict schedule. This year, we included some constituents that are not currently regulated. We are happy to report that there were no violations.
Water serving this spigot originates from springs and shallow wells in the Inner Basin and is not treated. The State of Arizona has determined that this water source requires routine testing and treatment before distribution to the public. The City of Flagstaff has evaluated treatment options, such as filtration and disinfection, however they are not practical nor feasible in a remote location such as the Inner Basin. To remain in compliance with all federal and state water quality rules and regulations, the City will permanently disconnect this water supply. We are exploring options to provide a raw water supply that the public can subsequently treat or filter for their use while hiking in the Inner Basin. We will keep the public updated on the status of these other water supply options via future social media posts.
The City suggests that bicyclists and hikers take sufficient water for their needs and treat any water sources found in the San Francisco Peaks as they would with water sources found elsewhere in the backcountry.
