The City of Cottonwood wastewater treatment facilities produce a Class A+ quality reclaimed water. The City has a reclaimed water delivery system, which includes selling reclaimed water to the Mesquite Hills Subdivision and the Del Webb -Cottonwood Ranch subdivision for landscape irrigation including the common areas. See picture below.
The City of Cottonwood also collaborated with Yavapai College to install a reclaimed water line to the college for watering of the Southwest Wine Center vineyards. The college has been purchasing the reclaimed water since 2014.
