How does the long range vision provide for the data supply?

What is the ultimate need for the City of Prescott longterm?

First, determine Planning Areas

Planning Area 1 is City Limits + CVID+YPIT + County Area served by the City

Planning Area 2: General Plan Extent + Planning Area 1

Account base: 88% single family, 9 % non residential

88% of accounts use 55% of the water

9% non-residential uses 34% of the water

 Tracking "future" accounts:

Types of future accounts

How to track or estimate future accounts

Tracking to track based on master plan, zoning density or General Plan Land Use Map

Future accounts: 4674 

Planning area #2: 15704 future accounts


Starting Demand

Establishes individual account average demand based on a minimum of 60 months of delivery data

Assumes a water demand for new and dormant customers based on

What if Adjustments: 

Bug Chino Years to Defer: 20

Groundwater allowance 9371.5 to 10645.6

Surface water: variable supply: use it or lose it.

Supply reliability: 

Groundwater reliable

Surface waer: highly variable

Reclaimed water: reliable

Long term storage credits highly reliable

Extinguismnents credits - basically groundwater

Big Chino importation highly reliable, but requires pipeline.

Planning Area  1: without Big Chino - a large cushion 

Planning Area 2: without Big Chino - a small cushion.

Big Chino isn't imperative immediately.

Run "what if" scenarios

"For what you need and what you look at, this model is a tool to give you information."

"We like to make data driven decisions," said Mayor Mengarelli. "[We're] in a great spot," he said.

Councilman Goode: "Usage of water is quite impressive," he said. "Clearly, we're going to have a pretty reliable future of available water. It's pretty encouraging."

"It's very evident that this community has been very sensitive to water use," Councilman Lamerson says. "The City of Prescott is the pioneer in Arizona."

Citizen (didn't catch name): Asks about other communities and other entities so that we can have a regional solution to best and wisest water uses.

Larry Meads: 3% of the accounts allocated to multi-family, and they use 10% of the water.

William Goswell: Under what circumstances does SRP give us the right to start storing water in our aquifers. 

Rob Simpson: Wants to use air conditioning condensation in some way? Claims that in San Diego there is similar humidity??? Asks other questions, but didn't really understand them.
