The Copper Basin facility will be a fully enclosed facility with state-of-the-art odor control equipment, extensive systems to monitor conditions round the clock and other important design features.
EPCOR has vast experience building and maintaining safe, enclosed water reclamation environments that integrate unobtrusively into their communities. In addition to being fully enclosed, our facilities use biological processes rather than rely on chemicals to treat wastewater. Our Verrado and Anthem (north Phoenix) facilities are examples of this approach, as is the new Luke 303 Water Reclamation Facility currently under construction, and very similar to the facility planned for Copper Basin.
Copper Basin will use treatment technologies that meet the ADEQ's Best Available Demonstrated Control Technology (BADCT) requirements. The plant will also meet setback standards, be fully and safely enclosed, and will not be accessible via neighborhood streets. All noise-generating equipment will be contained in either a building or a sound-attenuation enclosure to provide sound mitigation.
