As Flagstaff continues to grow, so does its need for water. But now the City of Flagstaff is looking to create a new water master plan in hopes of ensuring the city has an adequate supply of water far into the future.
City Water Resources Manager Erin Young told Flagstaff City Council on Tuesday night that the plan, which they expect to be completed within the next year and a half, will examine a number of water management strategies policymakers may choose between.
“One of the big takeaways for the community I think that will come from this is an idea of a sustainable Flagstaff and how water supports a sustainable Flagstaff,” Young told the council. “We only have so much water. […] What’s the best use of that water in terms of commercial development, industrial development, more residential.”
