On November 19, 2021 a class-action lawsuit against Johnson Utilities reached a proposed settlement in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona. If the court grants final approval, which we expect to happen in March 2022, a settlement fund of over $10 million will be created and distributed to former Johnson Utilities customers – including those who are now customers in EPCOR's San Tan water and wastewater districts.
EPCOR has arranged to disburse these funds to customers as a one-time credit on their bills after the court grants final approval of the settlement. That could be as early as April 2022. While we were not a party to the lawsuit, we're very pleased to do this – it's a simple, efficient solution that will result in more dollars being distributed to our customers.
This applies to former Johnson Utilities customers who paid for water and/or wastewater services between October 1, 2011, and the date the court gives its expected, preliminary approval of the settlement.
Once the court approves the settlement (as we expect it will), funds will most likely be disbursed to customers as a one-time credit on their bills. That could happen as early as April 2022.
Disbursements will be calculated using a formula that the court approves. We don't have anything to do with this process, and we're not able to say exactly how much each customer will receive. It will likely depend on the service(s) you received and the length of time you've been a customer.
No. The lawsuit was filed well before EPCOR stepped in as Interim Manager of Johnson Utilities and does not involve EPCOR in any way. Our only role is facilitating one-time credits to help our customers.
EPCOR agreed to place the one-time credit on customer bills to save administrative costs that would have been taken out of the settlement fund. We are unable to issue refund checks, but customers can use the credit to cover their EPCOR bill or bills, thus freeing up money that would have been used to pay your bill.
