East Flagstaff is finally getting a new waterline loop on Route 66, increasing reliability and capacity on the east side.  Work is currently underway to extend water main service along East Route 66 and N El Paso Flagstaff Road. The existing 12” pipeline will be extended 2,450 feet from near Test Drive to El Paso Flagstaff Rd, where it intersects and follows the road for another 1,600 feet with a new 8” pipeline. Currently on track for completion in July, the project will install over 4,000 linear feet of new water line service. This project adds resiliency to existing water service and opens the door for future needs.  

There is another great component to this project, critical to Flagstaff’s future. A tandem line is being installed, expanding the city’s fiber connectivity following Flagstaff’s Broadband Infrastructure Master Plan. This brings direct (and secure) internet connectivity to critical operations, such as Screenshot 2022-06-09 124206the Wildcat Hill Water Reclamation Plant, for future technological growth.

Expanding crucial infrastructure in both water and technology is a part of the City of Flagstaff’s ongoing effort to meet the future needs of our community, ensuring water flows consistently and safely to residents and businesses.
