At EPCOR, we're committed to providing our customers with a safe, reliable water supply now and long into the future. That means maintaining and investing in water infrastructure, from the wells and canals that bring the water to our treatment plants to the pipes that bring it to your homes.
In June 2019, EPCOR completed work on an important project to serve your community.
Importance to your community
There are 10 wells in Sun City West, many dating back to the very beginning of this master-planned community and even before. Well 1.5 was originally drilled in 1956, making it more than 60 years old.
Well 1.5 is an important piece of the infrastructure system that provides water to our Sun City West customers. Although maintenance and repairs are completed throughout the life of a well, as wells age they become less efficient and produce less water. After seven decades, Well 1.5 had declined to a point where it could no longer reliably produce the amount of water needed to satisfy the daily needs of our Sun City West customers and a replacement well was required. The new well is now complete and doing its part to bring water to Sun City West customers.
