Water Spigot Permanently Closed Near The Inner Basin Cabin

Inner Basin Sigot

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.
