Carefree Water Consolidation Project

Visit the official Carefree and Carefree Water Company sites by clicking either logo above

The Carefree Water Company (Carefree Water) has acquired the water system in the areas within Carefree currently served potable (drinking) water by the Town of Cave Creek. Carefree Water has begun the transition to serve all residents of the Town of Carefree by incorporating these 530 new accounts from the Cave Creek Water System into Carefree Water’s system.


Carefree Water contracted with CVL Consultants to design the improvements and Achen-Gardner Construction to construct the waterline improvements and other necessary infrastructure. Design is nearing completion and new waterline installation and service connections will begin soon.

The portions of Carefree within Neighborhoods A, B, and C in the Carefree Service Area (CSA) graphic at right will need to be physically disconnected from Cave Creek and reconnected to Carefree while maintaining continuous, or nearly continuous, water service. This is a significant undertaking requiring a considerable amount of water infrastructure construction. Upon completion of this process, the entirety of the Town of Carefree will fall within the water umbrella of the Carefree Water Company.

This consolidation will take approximately 12-18 months to complete.
