Johnson Utilities Reports They are Closing Section 11 Wastewater Treatment Plant

The Section 11 WWTP has been at the center of odor complaints from nearby residents in recent years. Wastewater currently being treated at the Section 11 WWTP will be treated at a new regional facility to be known as the Copper Basin Water Reclamation Plant that will be constructed by the Company after it receives the required regulatory permits and approvals. The Copper Basin WRP will be a state-of-the-art enclosed mechanical plant. “The Company sees this as a win-win for all involved,” says Gary Drummond, the Manager of Johnson Utilities.

In order to close the Section 11 WWTP and construct the new Copper Basin WRP, there are various regulatory permits and approvals the Company must obtain. The Company owns 32 acres of land that has been earmarked for the Copper Basin WRP. Once the new Copper Basin WRP is operational, the Section 11 WWTP will be fully decommissioned in accordance with all applicable regulatory requirements.

Before construction can begin on the new Copper Basin WRP, the Company must comply with the applicable zoning ordinances of Pinal County, apply for and obtain an amendment of its CAG 208 Plan from Central Arizona Governments, apply for and obtain an Aquifer Protection Permit from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, apply for and obtain an Underground Storage Facility permit from the Arizona Department of Water Resources, and apply for and obtain an air permit from the Pinal County Air Quality Control District.

Johnson Utilities would like to acknowledge the efforts and tireless encouragement of Todd House, Chairman of the Pinal County Board of Supervisors. Chairman House’s constructive dialogue with management of Johnson Utilities assisted the development of the plan to decommission the existing Section 11 WWTP and construct the new Copper Basin WRP. The Company would also like to acknowledge County Manager Greg Stanley and Pinal County Air Quality Control District Director Mike Sundblom for their constructive efforts in helping reach the decision that is announced today.
