The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has approved a community solutions funding measure for the purchase and installation of three chilled water fountains found on hiking trails at McDowell Mountain Regional Park, which is in District 2.

“These three water fountains, which include pet bowls, will provide additional sources of water for Maricopa County residents and their dogs,” said Vice Chairman Thomas Galvin, District 2, in a prepared statement. “The availability of clean drinking water at Trailhead Staging Area will benefit hikers and their dogs, and will enhance their outdoor experiences at the park.”

The Board of Supervisor community solutions funding is primarily intended to cover the cost of initiatives that carry the potential of advancing Maricopa County’s Strategic Goals and provide a clear public benefit for Maricopa County residents, county officials tell the Digital Free Press.

McDowell Mountain Regional Park has seen attendance increase over the last several years. Clean drinking water will be accessible at the Trailhead Staging Area, where three trailheads are located, including McDowell’s longest and most difficult trail, Pemberton.

The project costs $73,732 and is expected to be completed on June 17, according to a press release.
