The Big Park Domestic Wastewater Improvement District provides sanitary sewer service to portions of an unincorporated area in Yavapai County, Arizona known as the Village of Oak Creek and Big Park. The District is a Special Taxing Districtformed in 1972 under Arizona Revised Statutes Title 48 Chapter 6 as a County Improvement District with the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors sitting as the Board of Directors. On November 10, 1997, due to new legislation, the District was converted to a Domestic Wastewater Improvement District with a locally elected Board of Directors.
As of August 2008 there are approximately 4,500 lots within the boundary of the District and the sewer system services an average of 2,035 customers, including 189 commercial users.
The original 1972 wastewater treatment plant located off Jacks Canyon Road was demolished in 1996. The District constructed a new 500,000 gallons per day DAVCO wastewater plant and main liftstation in June 1996, a belt press facility was completed in November 1997, and an ultra-violet disinfection unit was added to the system in September 1999. The sewer system consists of approximately 27 miles of sewer lines with 5 lift stations. The main liftstation, located near the corner of Wild Horse Mesa and Hutson Lane, was upgraded and expanded in 2008. A portion of the treatment plant effluent output is delivered to theOakcreek Country Club Golf Course and the remainder is discharged into an unnamed wash off Jacks Canyon Road.
The District contracts with Improvement District Services, Inc. for administrative services; Environmental Biomass Services, Inc. for wastewater system operations.

The Village lies cradled by the red rock formations, as well as Wild Horse Mesa and House Mountain. If the view seems familiar, note that this valley, known as Big Park, was the setting for many western movies. This quiet and small residential community was established by farming/ranch settlers in the late 1800s, and today is known for its dining, lodging, shopping, hiking, biking and golf.
