Bullhead City, AZ., September 19, 2022 – Prestige Worldwide Technologies, LLC, under contract with the City of Bullhead City, is currently replacing or repairing 130 pressure reducing and/or pressure control valves throughout the city’s water utility system. Water customers may experience intermittent drops in water pressure while crews work in various neighborhoods. These drops in water pressure should last no longer than 1 hour at a time.

Pressure reducing valves are responsible for regulating water pressure throughout the utility. Faulty valves result in unbalanced water pressure throughout the system and can strain or damage pipes and equipment. By maintaining or replacing old valves, Bullhead City Utilities is extending the lifespan of existing infrastructure and providing a more reliable and consistent quality of water service for customers.

Prestige Worldwide Technologies, LLC began replacing and repairing valves on Monday, September 12, and the City anticipates work to be completed by September 30. The Bullhead City Council approved the contract with Prestige Worldwide Technologies, LLC during the August 16 City Council meeting.

In addition to ongoing infrastructure improvement projects, Bullhead City Utilities Division will be overseeing several Capital Improvement Projects around the city throughout the current fiscal year.

“It’s going to take a decade, in my opinion, to make up for EPCOR’s deferred maintenance,” said Bullhead City Manager, Toby Cotter during the August 16 City Council Meeting. “Our residents are going to continue seeing capital projects over and over.”
