Pine Valley Water Company Info

As residents of Pine Valley, the PVPOA Board asked questions about the water in our community to Lance and Lisa Wischmeier of  the Pine Valley Company. Below their questions and answers.
    1. If we lose electricity, can your generator provide adequate power?  How often is the generator tested?
      The generator is big enough to run the booster pumps and keep the water flowing to the subdivision.  We have had one instance where the power was out for about 12 hours and had no issues. We have water storage of 3 or 4 days in the middle of summer and more than a week in the cooler months. The generator gets tested monthly.
    2. With the ongoing drought, how is the water level holding?
      The water level is doing fine, it gets measured by the Department of Water Resources, every few years. At our last measurement the water was at 597′ about a year ago. it was at its lowest about 15 years ago at 599′ and the highest was 595′ 20 years ago and again about 5 years ago. So it fluctuates in that 5′ range, but keep in mind that our pump is set at a depth of 641′ so we are over 40′ below the water level and our well is drilled and cased over 840′ so we could always lower our pump to a depth to ensure plenty of water.
    3. Whose legal responsibility is it to check the fire hydrants? 
      The Fire Department is the one who tests the hydrants, they want to know from their tests at what rate each hydrant flows. They conduct the tests yearly as part of their training that gets the firefighters familiar with the subdivision, where the hydrants are located and how they would lay hose from the hydrants to areas of the subdivision. I do not know when the last tests were.

Water is the life blood of any community and it is a testament to the fine work by Lance and Lisa that we as residents residents take for granted.  We  are blessed to have a reliable source of water.

AZ House Bill 2672

by Editorial Team | Comments Off on AZ House Bill 2672

AZ House Bill 2672, signed by Governor Ducey on May 21, adds limits to how short-term rentals can operate in the state. It requires all property owners to provide their name and a contact number and address.

Read the bill here.

“HB 2672 requires property owners renting out space through apps like Airbnb or VRBO to provide authorities with contact information in case of a complaint, like for excessive noise.

“The bill also prohibits rentals for the purpose of holding a special event that would otherwise require a permit or license, or for using the building as a retail space, restaurant or banquet hall.” Read more at KTAR News

Firewise Clean-up Time
Fire Department Provides Free Dumpser

In an effort to encourage Pine Valley residents to clear out dead brush and leaves, the Sedona Fire District is providing a complimentary yard waste dumpster for our neighborhood.

It was delivered on Tuesday, April 28, and is open to everyone.  ONLY combustible vegetation… branches, leaves, twigs.  No cactus or trash of any kind!  You’ll find a map to the location at the bottom of this page.

Please help monitor the dumpster for appropriate use, be conscious of the neighbors who live on Ridgecrest Court, and clean up after yourself.  You should bring a broom and tools for pressing your waste into the dumpster.

Subject:  Firewise Clean-up

Due to the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, Sedona Fire District is conducting the 18th annual Firewise Clean Up.

As an essential service, it is imperative that we take steps to protect the health of our employees so that they may continue to provide emergency services.  For this reason, Sedona Fire District will not be able to provide firefighters to assist with unloading of materials from vehicles or trailers or to remain onsite and monitor the items being disposed.

We are seeking your assistance to help police the dumpsters to insure that only combustible vegetation is disposed of during this time.  Garbage, household items and cactus will not be allowed as those items are not consistent with the purpose of the event which is to assist our residents in removing combustible vegetation from around their homes.

1. Place only green waste in the dumpster (no plastic bags or other inorganic material).
This is for landscape debris only.
 ONLY combustible vegetation… branches, leaves, twigs.  No cactus or trash of any kind!
2. Be neat and keep the area clean for our neighbors who live on that street.
3. Compress the material you place in the dumpster to best utilize the space.
4. If you bring firewood to the dumpster, stack it neatly beside the dumpster for others to take.
