Flagstaff, like most Arizona communities, has historically struggled to find enough water to meet growing demand. But in recent years the City has relieved the pressure by reducing demand for potable water through conservation, reclaiming substantial amounts of wastewater for reuse, and investing in new water sources and infrastructure. Emerging technologies for direct reuse of wastewater may offer the City a possible alternative to its decade-old plan to develop Red Gap Ranch, but suggests that the city must navigate carefully to ensure a sustainable water future. We want to hear from you!
