The city of Flagstaff will receive more than $1 million in grants to improve how it manages its water.

The money will come in four installments from the Water Conservation Grant Fund, a program established by the state Legislature last year.

It includes $750,000 to update old water meters with ultrasonic ones, as well as money to build out computer models of the city’s local watersheds and groundwater resources.
