Arizona Corporation Commission September Open Meeting Updates re: EPCOR & Johnson Utilities

EPCOR-JU-1200

During an update from Johnson Utilities, LLC, the company's Interim Manager, EPCOR, informed the Arizona Corporation Commission that the company made it through summer with their water systems operating well, there weren't any pressure issues reported and the utility had sufficient water to meet demand.

Odor mitigation efforts in Section 11 include sealing up headworks, regulating water levels, chemical addition to wetlands, increasing contact time with aerators, removing old sludge from deep settling zones and increasing the Ecosorb misting system were completed and improvements have been seen from them. However, some of the work that was completed does result in discreet and periodic odor emissions. A significant reduction in odors has been observed through hydrogen sulfide loggers located around the community surrounding the facility. Efforts are being made to further reduce odor emissions on the entire collection system.

EPCOR reported that expansion of the Pecan plant is a priority project but is on hold due to ownership delaying financing for the project.

EPCOR is working with the Town of Queen Creek on terms and conditions of an interconnection agreement. Preliminary design concepts are being developed for potential interconnect points between Johnson Utilities and Queen Creek sewer collection systems. This will provide relief to Pecan water reclamation facility and Section 11 water reclamation facility. An update on this project will be provided at the October Open Meeting.

Regarding the company's customer care and outreach, overall customer satisfaction is at 87%.
