San Tan Valley Area Information

On June 8, 2018, the Utilities Division Staff of the Arizona Corporation Commission filed a Memorandum requesting that a new docket be opened to investigate the recent water outage due to a pump failure and to determine if Johnson Utilities, LLC has the necessary managerial and technical capabilities to operate water and wastewater systems.
An open meeting at the Arizona Corporation Commission was held Tuesday, June 12th and Johnson Utilities was item #20. While most of San Tan Valley has been watching the dockets concerning water and air quality issues, billing, water pressure, etc,  this docket (WS-02987A-06-6667)  was seeking an extension of a conditional Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CC&N) for Johnson Utilities.
While San Tan Valley residents wait to read the Recommended Opinion and Order (ROO) to be written by Adminstrative Law Judge (ALJ) Sarah Harping determining if an interim manager will be appointed to take over management of Johnson Utilities, Staff of the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) are determined to get all evidence to the ALJ before she writes her order.

As a land manager, we believe the decision to implement sooner rather than later is the responsible thing to do to ensure park visitor and park resource safety,” said R.J.
