A resolution is in the works to keep a 66-inch water main pipeline off a Phoenix residential street, as a potential partnership with Arizona Department of Transportation is sought, officials say.

On Jan. 15, Phoenix Water Services officials announced during a Land Use and Livability Subcommittee meeting that a draft intergovernmental agreement with the state department is being pursued.

The move comes on the heels of four resident petitions being filed through the Phoenix City Clerk’s office to halt, among other things, the proposed Phoenix Water project.

The drought resiliency infrastructure program seeks to install support in areas of northern Phoenix to allow for the distribution of Salt River water in the event of restricted Colorado River water due to a looming drought.
