Public Works Water Division

Welcome citizens. Currently the Water Division is starting the annual valve maintenance program. This program involves a four man crew, two service trucks, and two vacuum trailers. The crewmen acquire a Comprehensive Water Map of the City's Water Distribution System. This information tells the operator where the water valves are located and the size of each valve. The operators will actually vacuum the debris out of the valve box and then exercise the water valve.

One of the most frequently asked questions is why the City performs water valve maintenance. The answer is to insure that the valve is in the open position, that it actually works, and most importantly, that the City can count on it when needed. This maintenance procedure is one of the most important ones that we perform. The American Water Works Association recommends that water system valves are exercised annually. When the crew finds a water valve that is in need of repair, we schedule it as a priority. The City of Show Low's Water Distribution System has well over 2,000 water valves.

In addition to the water valve maintenance, the City Water Division performs tests on the water supply to ensure compliance from ADEQ and the EPA. The Water Gazette is published each year and is available to all residents. This report can be read online by clicking the Current Water Quality Report link.

Feedback and questions from the citizens of our town are welcomed. Please feel free to contact Cort Carpenter, Water Supervisor, at 928-532-4100, Monday thru Friday, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. should you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
