Representative T.J. Shope (R-8), along with Pinal County Supervisor Mike Goodman, today met with Arizona Corporation Commissioner Andy Tobin regarding water outages and pressure issues experienced by customers of Johnson Utilities in Pinal County.
Commissioner Tobin updated Representative Shope and Supervisor Goodman on the multiple dockets opened investigating Johnson Utilities issues and expressed hope that the Corporation Commission will hold a special meeting to expunge Johnson Utilities’ Certificate of Convenience and Necessity for failing to meet a previous compliance deadline.
“We’re in the middle of fire season, and firefighters in Pinal County are having to haul their own water because our hydrants don’t have sufficient water pressure to meet code – that’s completely unacceptable,” said Representative Shope.
“I’m grateful to Commissioner Tobin for meeting with Supervisor Goodman and me today and for all his hard work addressing the water issues in San Tan Valley. I’ll continue to monitor the situation and do what I can to ensure that these issues are resolved as expeditiously as possible.”BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
