EPCOR to Install New Water Main in Paradise Valley

February 25, 2019
Published In: Corporate Information

​If you've ever been to Paradise Valley, you know that its beauty is owed to the undulating hills, cactus-studded landscapes and stunning resort properties situated in the foothills of Camelback Mountain and Mummy Mountain.

Due to the community's natural and manmade features—the steep desert topography, along with the large commercial and residential water users—EPCOR's 5,000 customers in Paradise Valley have unique infrastructure needs.

To meet these needs, EPCOR this coming April 2019 will begin installing a new, two-plus-mile water main that will run along Lincoln Drive from 36th Street to Desert Fairways Drive. This infrastructure investment will boost water capacity by nearly 3 million gallons per day to homes and businesses and ensure long-term system reliability.

Construction is expected to be completed in late-September 2019.

Crews will be boring under the intersection at Lincoln Drive and Tatum Boulevard, a technique that will reduce traffic disruptions. EPCOR has also been working closely with the Town and resorts to communicate all of the details and minimize the construction timeline.

"This is going to be a great long-term project for customers that will ensure system reliability. Recognizing the importance of the tourism industry in this community, we've timed this project to take place in the off season," said Jeff Stuck, Vice President of Arizona Operations for EPCOR. "At EPCOR, we take great pride in being a good neighbor. We've been working very closely with town residents, officials and the resorts to ensure this major infrastructure investment is performed safely and on time."
