Effective March 16, 2020 and until further notice

Improvement District Services office will be closed to all walk-in customers.


The COVID-19 outbreak is a rapidly developing situation.  We care about the health and safety of our customers, employees and our entire community. For the safely of all, we are closing our office to walk-in patrons at this time.  Since all District business can be easily be handled via phone, email or online, removing walk-in service will not remove any essential services to our customers and yet in doing so, keeps our employees safe and maintains our ability to serve you.


Payments can be sent by mail, made online or left in the mail slot.  They will be processed the same business day they are received.  Please note:  We cannot accept cash left in the mail slot as we are unable to provide a receipt.  Money orders can be purchased most places, including at the Circle K across the street for under $1.50.


Being available to assist our customers means we must keep our office staff healthy.  Thankfully through technology there are many ways we are here to support you.  You can call the office at (928) 443-9484  and/or email us at: or and we'll be happy to assist you.

About the American Ranch DWID

The American Ranch Domestic Water Improvement District was formed as a Special Taxing District in 2000 under the Arizona Revised Statutes Title 48, to provide water service.  In 2009 the ARDWID was combined with the American Ranch Sanitary District to provide both water and sewer service to the residential lots and the community buildings in the American Ranch subdivision located off Williamson Valley Road north of Prescott, Arizona in Yavapai County.

The original construction of the facilities was completed by the subdivision developer, the M-3 Companies, and conveyed to the District.  The water system has specific meter and backflow prevention device requirements and the low pressure sewer system has specific requirements for the on-site grinder systems.
These requirements are listed in the American Ranch Water Ordinance and Sewer Ordinance.

The District contracts with Western Environmental Technologies, Inc. for utility operations and with Improvement District Services, Inc. for administrative services.  The District office is located at
