Flagstaff, Arizona (AP) August 2010

Flagstaff water commissioners have made a recommendation on a water source for snowmaking at the Arizona Snowbowl ski resort.

The U.S. Forest Service has issued a permit to allow the Snowbowl to spray man-made snow on the San Francisco Peaks. At issue is whether treated wastewater or more expensive drinking-quality water will be sent through a pipeline to the resort.

Flagstaff City Manager Kevin Burke says the water commission voted 5-4 July 30 to recommend to the City Council that the Snowbowl and the federal government be allowed to use either water source.

Spraying artificial snow on the mountain that American Indian tribes consider sacred has been a contentious issue for years.
