On Wednesday, June 18, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Verde River Basin Partnership is sponsoring a field trip. It's an opportunity for attendees to learn how water gets to homes in Prescott, where it comes from, and what happens to it once it's been used.

The tour will first visit one of Prescott's municipal wells in Chino Valley to learn about that well field's development, about the infrastructure required to take water from the well field to Prescott, and what's involved in delivering it to the many areas around town.

Once the water gets used in the home, what happens to it next? The next stop on the tour will answer that question. The attendees will visit the new wastewater treatment plant by the airport and visit the place where Prescott recharges water back into the ground.

Craig Dotseth, Senior Utilities Operations and Infrastructure Analyst for City of Prescott Public Works will lead this field trip. Mr. Dotseth has been with the City of Prescott for 17-1/2 years in various positions, overseeing both water and wastewater operations. His current role is focused on engineering review and is the capital project lead for utilities operations. In total, he has worked in the water and wastewater industry for 28 years, with coursework from Pima Community College in Environmental Science and Hazardous Materials.

The meeting location is the parking lot in front of the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension building at 840 Rodeo Drive in Prescott. It is located on the south side of the rodeo grounds and it's easiest to reach by way of Gail Gardner Way. From there, the group can plan to carpool to the sites. Please bring water and a picnic lunch if you attend.

The event is free and everyone is invited! No RSVP is necessary.

The Partnership is a scientific and educational resource raising awareness among citizens and community leaders about the workings of Verde River Basin's interconnected groundwater and surface water systems, and the life they support.
