Flagstaff, Arizona

The City of Flagstaff was established in 1882 as a railroad stop for train water and passengers and first utilized spring water near what is now known as “Old Town Spring” adjacent to Mars Hill. This water source was very limited and a new supply was soon needed. After the City became incorporated in 1884 with only 1,500 residents, Mayor Abineau began the City’s first of three major water supply importation projects from miles outside its corporate limits. The vision of the City’s first reliable water supply came from within the San Francisco Peaks where a 12 mile, 6-inch clay pipeline was constructed from the Inner Basin through Shultz Canyon to a 2.5 million gallon reservoir located north of Flagstaff along what is now Shultz Pass Road (Figure 1.1). An 8-inch cast iron pipeline continued on into town providing the railroad and citizens its first reliable water supply. Additional improvements of Jack Smith Spring, Flagstaff Spring and Snowslide Spring located between 9,600 feet and 11,020 feet were conducted by the City and Arizona Lumber & Timber Company in 1899 and 1900, respectively. The new water system went into use with approximately 300 customers where residences paid $2/month, which at the time was a day’s wage for most men.
