Arizona Corporation Commission Invites Utility Customers To Attend

By Arizona Corporation Commission

Continued from page 1

A town hall meeting has been scheduled to hear from residents of San Tan Valley regarding Johnson Utilities, LLC Section 11 Wastewater Treatment Plant and related items. The town hall will take place Thursday, May 23, 2019, at 6 p.m. at the Central Arizona College, San Tan Valley Campus.

The purpose of the meeting is to hear from residents and stakeholders in San Tan Valley regarding the previous issues of odor complaints, hydrogen sulfide, water quality, sewage capacity, sanitary sewer overflows, new sewer connections, and other matters related to the Section 11 Wastewater Treatment Plant. 

In 2018 the Arizona Corporation Commission conducted an investigation of Johnson Utilities and voted to appoint an interim manager to assume operational control over the utility. The Arizona Corporation Commission also voted to institute restrictions on new water and sewer connections, until infrastructure improvements could be made, or new capacity could be managed.

The town hall will present Johnson Utilities customers and other stakeholders in San Tan Valley an opportunity to provide an update on these and any other related issues, in advance of the coming summer months

The May 23 meeting will be a listening session only. Because there are ongoing cases at the Arizona Corporation Commission, Commissioner Tobin will not be able to answer specific questions; he will only be able to listen to comments and concerns. EPCOR Water Arizona, Internal Commission Staff, and the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality Water Quality Division may be present to answer questions from the public.
