Putting the effluent to use is important for the Town. The only legal growth in Prescott Valley occurs on lots that were granted rights to use groundwater prior to 1999. Groundwater-based subdivisions are no longer approved by ADWR. Until the Big Chino Project can be completed (see web page), the Town has very limited options for water to supply future economic development.
