Project 2 of the Drought Pipeline Project includes the installation of a 66-inch “transmission main” along 32nd Street up to Bell Road, and a large booster pump station just south of Bell Road at 31st Street.  

There  are several phases top the Project 2. The first phase is the installation of a 66-inch pipeline and valve at Bell Road and 32nd Street. This phase started in November 2020 and was completed in mid to late February 2021. Then installation began on the pipeline at 32nd Street and Bell Road in June, and is due to be completed in mid-September. 

The transmission main phase along 32nd street down to the SR51 will be used to move additional water from a Phoenix water treatment plant that uses Salt River Project (SRP) water to an area further north in the city that would normally use Central Arizona Project (CAP) water. That phase of Project 2 is expected to begin in late summer 2021.
