these amenities are now open and ready for use.
Clubhouse has a total of 1,758 square feet, 39 parking spaces with an additional
70 guest parking spaces strategically located throughout the project. The
clubhouse is sprinkled, has a central room with built in television console,
office, fully equipped exercise room, kitchen with upgraded appliances and
granite countertops, and two bathrooms.
The contiguous 4,800
square foot deck enhances an 18 x 40 foot, 18,850-gallon swimming pool, with an
outdoor shower. The regulation size tennis court is fenced and built on a 9-inch
Rounding out the
recreational amenities is a spectacular one-half mile long landscaped nature
walk edged with railroad ties and with a 3-inch decomposed gravel base. Future
residents may also enjoy the Beaver Creek Ranch Golf Club in Lake Montezuma or
the legendary courses in the Village of Oak Creek and Sedona.
Gates/Mailbox Complex/Entrance Key Kiosk: Beaver
Creek Preserve is one of the few gated communities in the Sedona region, and
vehicular access is restricted by a decorative 6 foot high wall along the
developmentís south boundary for 2,687 lineal feet, and the natural barrier
formed by the adjacent Coconino Natural Forest and Interstate 17.
Ingress and egress to
Beaver Creek Preserve is through two decorative wrought iron vehicle gates with
individual swing arms control boxes, and a pedestrian gate. A DoorKing PC,
Programmable Access Control System, located at an entry kiosk housing a coded
keypad and a swipe card reader, electronically controls the gates. The entry
gates may also be operated by remote telephone instructions or by a manual

are two on-site wells registered with the Arizona Department of Water Resources.
Well #55-211180 (35 gpm/12 inch bore/350 feet deep) provides water to the
clubhouse, pool, and tennis court and area irrigation. Well #55-903938/55-903944
(35 gpm/18 inch bore/300feet deep) was originally drilled as an ADEQ approved
Effluent Recharge Well, but now solely serves the balance of the projectís
irrigation needs. Currently, 100% of the siteís landscape irrigation comes
from the two wells.
and Electrical Service: Qwest
provides telephone service and all wires have been pulled to conduit stubs
located at each lot line. Underground electrical service is provided by Arizona
Public Service, and all transformers, switching cabinet, junction and pull boxes
have been installed, with wiring pulled to conduits located at each lot line.
APS also installed electric pedestals within 8 of the 9 landscape roadway
islands for future electrical access for street maintenance, irrigation, or
Valley has historic problems with on-site wells, which prompted Beaver Creek
Preserve to expend funds to provide a reliable domestic water source. On October
5, 2005, Beaver Creek Preserve requested that the Arizona Water Company (AWC)
submit a joint application to the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) allowing
them to extend their Certificate of Convenience and Necessity Franchise Area. On
July 28, 2006, the ACC issued an Order and Opinion approving the expansion.
Once approved, 4,400 lineal feet of 12-inch ductile water pipe was installed
from the Lake Montezuma/Rimrock Post Office to the project entry. A further
8,800 lineal feet of ductile pipe was installed on-site, along with a major
hydro-pneumatic booster station to serve the fire suppression requirements of 11
strategically located fire hydrants, and the water requirements for lots sited
at higher elevations. Beaver Creek Preserve also installed 1-inch subsurface
hose bib connections within each of the landscaped roadway islands.
Beaver Creek Preserve felt it was imperative to provide an on-site
domestic sewer disposal system, rather than promulgate the use of septics.
During the course of several years, Beaver Creek Preserve worked diligently with
the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) to design an acceptable
treatment plant, and on August 15, 2007 ADEQ issued an Aquifer Protection Permit
# P-105724 and permission to operate a wastewater plant.
Based on the design,
each household will be connected to a one horsepower grinder pump which in turn,
will connect to a low pressure small diameter (1 1/4 to 3 inch) wastewater
distribution network of 7,770 lineal feet connecting to a hydro-aerobic
prefabricated steel wastewater treatment plant manufactured by Ashbrook
Simon-Hartley of Houston, Texas.
activated sludge treatment system is designed to treat an average daily flow of
31,717 gallons or a peak flow rate of 33,303 gallons per day of domestic sewage.
The plant, housed in
an insulated 2,100 square foot steel building with an internal charcoal odor
control air-handler, is a single unit measuring 70 by 30 feet on a poured
concrete foundation. The plant contains two anoxic chambers, emergency storage
tank, sludge holding chamber, aeration chamber, clarifier chamber, sludge
recalculation system, scum circulation system, air supply blower motor units,
main electrical control console, ultraviolet disinfection system, dosing
chamber, flow meter and effluent pump station.
Once an adequate
amount of treated effluent is produced (estimated at twelve homes), the effluent
will be pumped for irrigation use to a planned subsurface leach field near Lot
20, and into an existing 2 inch subsurface irrigation line running 2, 000 lineal
feet along the south wall and then into a ĺ inch pipe located on the upper
portion of North Jo Ann Drive.
Currently, the Plant
is not on line due to low volume demand, and ADEQ is allowing Beaver Creek
Preserve to periodically vault and haul the decanted sludge off-site to an
