During the Nov. 6 Flagstaff City Council meeting, two residents were escorted out by police after the council denied putting their petition against reclaimed water usage on a future agenda.
After more than two hours of grant considerations, the council came to the citizen’s petition regarding city water. Speaking on behalf of Flagstaff citizens were locals Ann Marie Zellar and “Uncle” Don Fanning.
According to the City of Flagstaff, “class A+” water comes from both of Flagstaff’s wastewater treatment plants: Wildcat Hill Wastewater and Rio de Flag Water Reclamation. This water is supplied to recreational areas schools, cemeteries, public landscapes and residences. This includes the NAU campus and snowmaking at Snowbowl.
