Johnson Utilities, November Update from EPCOR

EPCOR-JU-1200

During an update from Johnson Utilities, LLC, the company's Interim Manager, EPCOR, informed the Arizona Corporation Commission that the company's new Ion Exchange (IX) has been in operation for several months and the system continues to be effective in treating the ground water in the region. The construction of a third vessel has been completed and has increased production potential by 500 gallons per minute at the Main Yard facility.

An automated Chlorination project has been completed at the main yard and will treat the 'Treated Water Blend' that is a combination of water treated by ion exchange system and untreated well water. Pipeline and air relief valve projects are also being evaluated system wide to increase water supply to areas that have historically experienced lower flows/pressures.

Funding the capital improvement plan is still a serious concern and remains an issue preventing EPCOR from starting some capital projects. Pecan Phase IV Expansion & IPS Headworks projects cannot commence construction until Johnson Utilities' ownership secures financing consistent with Decision No. 77641 (June 22, 2020), as amended by Decision No. 77674 (July 15, 2020) or unless the proposed acquisition is approved.

The Pecan plant is approaching its treatment capacity and it will take approximately 12 months to complete the expansion construction. Sufficient funds are not available from operations or from hook-up fees to complete this project.

An agreement was reached with the Town of Queen Creek on terms/conditions of an interconnect. Design is underway for three interconnect points between Johnson Utilities and Queen Creek sewer collection systems to provide relief to Pecan Water Reclamation Facility and the Commission ordered that EPCOR move forward with implementing the agreement with Queen Creek.

All documents related to this agenda item can be found in the Corporation Commission's online docket at https://edocket.azcc.gov/ and entering docket number WS-02987A-18-0050.
