The Zone 101 Pump Station original design plans were completed with the Zone 12 Reservoir. The Zone 12 Reservoir Construction Contract was awarded to Fann Contracting on the December 7, 2012 Council meeting and the project was substantially completed on June 25, 2013. The Zone 101 Pump Station was not needed until the Granite Dells Estates subdivision was developed and service was needed. On January 31, 2014 Granite Dells Estates subdivision submitted their final plat. The 101 Pump Station will service this development and will need to be constructed per the Granite Dells Estates Development Agreement.

The contract to update the plans and for construction management was awarded to Lyon Engineering and includes updating the plans and specifications to detail the constructed reservoir, update electrical utilities and control panel supply and integration for the Pump Station. The engineer will also provide all construction administration services including, ADEQ permitting, land surveying, structural, mechanical, electrical design submittal review and specialty inspections for mechanical, electrical and structural components of the pump station construction.

This Engineering contract will provide communication services and programming coordination with the overall Water System Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) to allow the pump station seamless communication with the Zone 12 storage facility and Well #2 and #3. In the past, the City has included this item under the construction contract, but staff feels a better product and control over the complex programming and communication equipment is available by including this service under the engineering contract.

City staff has completed review of the 100% plans and is waiting for the design engineer to complete final plans, which are expected in September. The project will include coordination with the Arizona Public Service Utility Company to extend 3-phase power to the site. The project should be advertised for Bid in late fall.

Any questions or comments regarding the project may be emailed to the project Manager, Jeff Low at jeff.low@Prescott-az.gov

The project is to design the upgrade to the existing Prescott Resort Pump Station that feeds Pressure Zone 56 from 740 gallons per minute to 1750 gallons per minute. The project has been proposed based on the City Water Distribution Model calling for a new Zone 56 reservoir to be installed at a higher elevation than the existing Prescott Canyon Reservoir with additional capacity. Per the water model master plan, the new Zone 56 reservoir and upgraded Prescott Resort Pump Station will provide required pressures, residential /commercial fire flows to the entire Zone 56 area, and will enhance pressures to the other surrounding water system zones. The project was awarded to Kelley-Wise Engineer and the pump station design has been completed. The project has experienced a delay in obtaining needed easements with the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe, which was partially due to impact fees negotiations. Based on updated discussions the project will include upsizing the water line from the pump station to Prescott Resort to provide adequate fire flows. Project coordination between the Yavapai Indian Tribe - Prescott Resort and Casino will be required to limit any disruptions to the facility.

Staff is anticipating a contract amendment with Kelley-Wise Engineering to update the plans this Fall. Construction is dependent on obtaining the required easement, prior to advertising the project for bid.

Questions regarding the project should be addressed to the City Project Manager, Jeff Low at (928) 777-1130 or email to jeff.low@prescott-az.gov.

On October 10, 2012 a Flood Study and design project was awarded to JE Fuller Hydrology and Geomorphology for the study of Willow Creek Wash. Based on the flood study, a water main relocation and scour protection plan was developed for the three water mains crossing Willow Creek at approximately 1000 feet downstream of Clearwater Drive.

City staff has reviewed the 100% plans and forwarded comments back to the design engineer. Prior to having the engineer finalize the design, the City will be bidding a design bid for a water stop at two locations in the project area so water valves can be installed. The water line stops are required on the 14-inch steel concrete lined water lined installed in 1948. Staff is currently reviewing proposals for the water line stops and expects to request price proposals by the beginning of September.

Final plans and advertisement for the water line replacement project are expected after the water valves have been installed. Any questions or comments regarding the project may be emailed to the project Manager, Jeff Low at jeff.low@Prescott-az.gov
