Abstract:
Fort Valley is located 3.5 miles northwest of Flagstaff, Coconino County, Arizona. This thesis assesses the water resources of Fort Valley and the surrounding basin. The history and climate of the Valley are presented. Fort Valley residents rely on private wells and water hauling for water supply. The Arizona Groundwater Management Act of 1980 allows for water transfers out of the basin. The transfer issue is evaluated. Groundwater levels in the Valley are mapped and an estimate of recharge is made. A water budget for the basin is made. The peak runoff from the watershed is estimated using the U.S. Soil Conservation Service method. The potential for groundwater contamination from on site wastewater disposal methods is evaluated. Alternatives to individual water and wastewater systems are analyzed.
