UPDATE: As of Wednesday, Dec. 11, the U.S. Forest Service had turned off the Highway 89A hydrant near Pine Flat Campground for water quality testing. Results were expected to be available on Friday, Dec. 13 and the water at the highway hydrant was projected to be turned on Saturday, Dec. 14.

PHOENIX — Arizona Game and Fish Department will temporarily shut down the water system servicing some of the upper Oak Creek users Dec. 5-7 in order to conduct repairs to the Sterling Spring Fish Hatchery delivery system.

The water system shutdown will impact the Pine Flats Subdivision, Manresa Resort, Pine Flat Campground and the public water faucet along state Route 89A.

The water service is expected to be operational Sunday. The repairs are being conducted in order to complete a renovation process that has been ongoing for the past year.
