Special open meeting public comment session to be held concerning the recommended opinion and order for EPCOR Water Arizona Inc.'s rate application

Docket No. WS-01303A-20-0177​​

On June 15, 2020, EPCOR Water Arizona Inc. (“EPCOR” or “Company”) filed with the Arizona Corporation Commission (“Commission”) an application for a determination of the fair value of its plant and property used to provide water utility service to its Agua Fria, Anthem, Chaparral, Havasu/Brooke, ​Mohave, North Mohave, Paradise Valley, Sun City, Sun City West, Tubac, and Willow Valley water districts; for increases/decreases in its rates and charges for such water utility service; and for consideration of consolidating some, all, or none of its water districts.

A corrected Recommended Opinion and Order (‘’ROO”) in this matter was docketed on November 26, 2021. The ROO will be considered by the Commission at its January 11 and 12, 2022, Open Meeting.​​

How you can view​ or obtain a copy of the ROO

Copies of the ROO are available at the Commission’s Docket Control Center at 1200 West Washington Street, Phoenix, Arizona, and 400 West Congress Street, Suite 218, Tucson, Arizona, during regular business hours, and on the Commission website (​) using the e-Docket function and Docket No. WS-01303A-20-0177. Please note that access to Commission buildings may be restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

​​Telephonic public comme​nt meetings

The Commission has scheduled a Special Open Meeting telephonic public comment on the ROO to be held on January 10, 2022, beginning at 9:00 a.m., and ending at 11:00 a.m., or until the last caller is finished speaking, whichever comes first.

To provide telephonic public comments, call 1-866-705-2554 and enter this code: 241497#

The Commission will impose a three-minute time limit per speaker, to maximize the number of callers who have an opportunity to speak. That time limit may be extended by the Commission.

There may be a significant wait time to speak, and callers will be muted until it is their turn to speak. However, once placed into the proceeding, callers will be able to hear the comments of other callers through the phone line. Callers should turn off their computer audio during the public comment meeting, as the live stream on is delayed by 28 seconds and may cause feedback when it is the caller’s turn to speak.

The Commission encourages callers to use landline telephones for the telephonic public comment meetings, as mobile telephones do not consistently provide adequate audio quality to permit the verbatim transcription of telephonic speech. If a caller cannot be sufficiently understood to make an accurate transcription, the caller will be requested to file written comments in the docket.

The telephonic public comment meeting will end when the last caller on the telephone line has had an opportunity to speak or at the designated end time, whichever occurs first.

Written public comments may be submitted by mailing a letter referencing Docket No. WS-01303A-20-0177 to Arizona Corporation Commission, Consumer Services Section, 1200 West Washington Street, Phoenix, AZ 85007, or by submitting comments on the Commission’s website ( using “Cases and Open Meetings” and “Make a Public Comment in a Docket.” For assistance, you may contact the Consumer Services Section at 602-542-4251 or 1-800-222-7000.
