Water quality and availability on the land you buy is essential to enjoying your country acres. Water availability varies in Northern Arizona.  Some land supports sucessful drilling and some does not.   

Water for Rural Land

  • When buying a home or land in the country, you need to know if there is an adequate quality water supply.
  • Have your agent get a Well Estimate before you buy. 

Water in Northern Arizona

  1. Water availability varies across the northern part of Arizona (The Arizona Department of Water Management Well Map).  The dense red areas on the map show an abundance of wells with a dot for every on. Areas with few dots is how that water is deep and most residents haul water or pay to have it delivered. 
  2. Well water is pretty readily available from Kingman east to the edge of Mohave County, but once you enter Yavapai County the water table is much deeper and wells more expensive.
  3. Many communities there function on a shared well agreement where you can “haul water”  (aka “water haul properties”) to your homestead for a cost per gallon paid to the Property Owners’ Association. 
  4. Other areas rely on water delivery because their community may not have water or may not have made arrangements for shared water service.  This is vital information to know before buying your parcel.
  5. When you are contemplating purchasing land in Northern Arizona, the water situation will make a difference to your cost and your lifestyle.  Ask the following questions.
  6. Have the property owners around your prospective land drilled wells and found good water?
  7. At what depth?  How much did drilling their well cost them and who would they recommend?
  8. Is everyone around your prospective property hauling water from a community well?
  9. Are your potential neighbors paying to have their water delivered?
  10. With this information, a phone call to the water authority and to the Well Driller (or a couple) in your area, you will be able to come up with an answer you are comfortable with.
  11. Find out about the water situation before you buy your dream property!
