1,800-acre project generates 70 written comments from public

Dozens of comments have flooded Prescott City Hall in recent months — many with the same basic message: Vote “no” on the Deep Well project.

But city officials maintained during a Tuesday, Nov. 7, City Council workshop that a rejection of 1,800-acre project planned on ranch land in northeast Prescott would be inadvisable in some cases, and not legally possible in others.

Especially when it comes to the 950 acre-feet of alternative water and 900 acre-feet of Big Chino Water Ranch water that has already been allocated to the project, City Attorney Jon Paladini said, “This is an obligation that the city cannot unilaterally change.”
