Yesterday, July 5th 2018, Johnson Utilities announced new Reverse Osmosis equipment will be filtering 2 wells that have been offline amidst the low water pressure issues many San Tan Valley residents have been facing. Johnson Utilities is urging water conservation while they work to get these wells up and running. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) announced a $10,000 fine to the utility for the low and no water pressure problems.
More residents have been speaking out and have contacted many different media outlets such as Fox 10, ABC 15, SanTanTimes.com and many others.
In a surprise move by the Arizona Corporation Commission, yesterday they have announced an open meeting for today at 2:30pm. It is open to the public, however there will be no public comments. We will be watching this meeting online and will update via our Johnson Utilities Customers group on Facebook.
There is an investigational meeting into the water outages including a hearing set for 10 a.m., July 16, at the Corporation Commission offices: 1200 West Washington Street, Phoenix AZ. There is a group of residents planning on attending hoping to share their stories.
