REPORTING SYSTEM LEAKS
To report a water leak, call the Utilities Department 24 hours a day at (928)639-2520.
NOTICE OF REPAIR
In most cases leaks can be scheduled for repair. The Utilities Dept. will notify affected residents when there will be a
scheduled interruption in service. When there is an interruption in service due to an emergency water main repair our
first priority is restoring service to our customers. It is not always possible to notify residents before shutting the water off.
NEW WATER SERVICE
To establish a new water service an “Application for Water” must be completed and connection fees paid. Applications are available
at the Utilities Dept. 15 N. Ninth Street, Clarkdale, AZ.

Does my water need additional treatment?
For most people, the answer is no. Safe Drinking Water Act standards are set to ensure that your tap water is safe. People
who have medical conditions that might put them at special risk should discuss the need for a water filter with their doctors.
All public water systems are required to complete an Annual Drinking Water Quality Report and distribute this report to system
Home Treatment Devices
Many stores and companies sell various home treatment devices, ranging from small faucet-mounted filters to “whole-house”
systems to water softeners. While we cannot recommend specific brands or products, the following information should be helpful.
For specific project information, contact NSF International, Consumer Report, or the device manufacturer. Maintenance is
important with any home treatment device, as an inadequately maintained filter can actually reduce water quality.
Under the Town of Clarkdale’s Water Ordinance, Drought and Water Shortage Preparedness Strategy Level I is automatically
in effect from May 1st through September 30th each year.
During Demand Reduction Strategy I “Water Alert”, there is no outside watering allowed on Mondays, or any day between the
hours of 9:00 – 5:00 pm. Water Schedule is according to your address. Even street numbers can water on Wednesday, Friday,
and Sunday. Odd street numbers can water on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. For property without an assigned street
number, follow the Even street number schedule.
CLARKDALE WATER USE
In 2006 when we purchased the Clarkdale water system along with Cottonwood, our average consumption was 11,000 gallons
per household. The water usage was approximately 46% higher than the amount of water the average American used during
that same period.
Below is a chart showing water usage in Clarkdale for the years 2007, 2008, and 2009. Clarkdale residents have made great strides
in lowering water usage over these last three years. In 2007, 2008, and 2009 the average usage was approximately 5,000 gallons
per household per month, (using 2.4 persons as the average household figure).
