Important Update Provided by EPCOR

Wastewater flows from the Copper Basin community, and many other neighborhoods served by Johnson Utilities, are collected and treated at the Johnson Utilities Section 11 Wastewater Treatment Plant. Because the amount of wastewater flowing to this facility exceeds the capacity that it was built for and is negatively impacting the plant’s ability to function properly, EPCOR has put emergency measures in place to reduce the amount of wastewater entering the Section 11 plant.

Under EPCOR’s management, Johnson Utilities has installed and is operating an emergency 2,100-foot-long, eight-nch above-ground wastewater pipeline that connects the Copper Basin #2 Lift Station to the Copper Basin #1 Lift Station. This pipeline will redirect approximately 220,500 gallons of wastewater per day to the Anthem at Merrill Ranch Water Reclamation Facility on a daily basis.

The pipeline begins at the Copper Basin #2 Lift Station, located east of the area of North Main Street and North Gold Lane. From there the emergency pipeline runs west and then southwest for a total of approximately 2,100 feet until it ends at and connects with the Copper Basin #1 Lift Station, which is located near the intersections of East Bagdad Road and North Muscovite Drive.

This emergency measure was taken to reduce wastewater flows to the Section 11 Wastewater Treatment Plant due to operational issues.

This pipeline is being operated under a Temporary Emergency Waiver issued by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality on April 29, 2019, Case ID# 180808. Please do not approach this pipeline – contact should be avoided. Please our Customer Care at 480-987-9870 with any questions.
