Project background

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.

EPCOR is installing over 2 miles of water main pipe along Lincoln Drive in the Town of Paradise Valley. This investment in water infrastructure will ensure long-term system reliability, and increase capacity in the Paradise Valley water district by nearly 3 million gallons per day.

Project timeline

Construction began late-April 2019, with completion expected by late-September 2019. We expect ongoing traffic delays along the project on Lincoln Drive, from 36th Street to Desert Fairways Drive.

Installing a water main is a time-consuming process that must be done in phases. The proposed phases/timeframes for the traditional open-trench installation are listed below, subject to approval by the Town of Paradise Valley:

  • May 2019 - June 2019: 36th Street to 40th Street
  • June 2019: 40th Street to 42nd Street
  • June 2019 - July 2019: 42nd Street to Hillside Drive
  • July 2019: Hillside Drive to 48th Street
  • July 2019 - September 2019: 48th Street to 52nd Place

There will also be separate crews working to install pipe under major storm drains at the following location scheduled as follows, subject to approval by the Town of Paradise Valley:

  • June 2019: Hillside Drive
  • June 2019: Tatum Boulevard
  • June 2019: Between 46th Street and 48th Street
  • July 2019: Between Tatum Boulevard and 51st Place
  • July 2019: Between 51st Place and 52nd Place
We recognize this work may cause temporary inconveniences, and we’re completing it as quickly and safely as possible.
