The Town of Chino Valley proposes to add new water main pipelines to create loops in the water distribution system, improving water service reliability and redundancy and reducing the resources needed to maintain acceptable water quality. A looped drinking water distribution system consists of connected pipe loops throughout the area to be served. The project would be implemented in two phases. Phase I would create a water system loop in the northern section of the water distribution system by installing approximately 4,554 linear feet (LF) of 12-inch water main from the existing terminus at Perkinsville Road to the 12-inch water main at Road 2 North. Phase II would create another loop in the water distribution system by installing approximately 2,448 LF of 12-inch water main from the abovementioned connection point at Road 2 North to Production, Storage, and Pressure Facility No. 1.
