Expanding and repairing your water storage tank facilities

At EPCOR Water, providing our customers with a safe, reliable water supply is the foundation of what we do, and we are committed to ensuring that your water delivery system continues to do that now and long into the future. That means maintaining and investing in water infrastructure, from the wells and pipes that bring the water to our treatment plants, to the pipes that bring it to your homes.

Over the next decade EPCOR will invest more than $500 million to keep your water and wastewater systems running safely and reliably – approximately $340 million on water infrastructure alone.

In October 2016, EPCOR will begin work on an important project to serve your community and ensure the continued reliability of your water system.

Why is it important?

Water for the Agua Fria water district is constantly flowing, moving from its source deep underground or high in the Rocky Mountains down through the Colorado River through a complex treatment and delivery system until it arrives at your tap.

Storage tanks are an important part of the process, ensuring that there is always enough water ready and waiting for you. Water for the northern part of the Agua Fria water district – including the communities of Corte Bella, Cross River, Dos Rios, Rancho Cabrillo and Coldwater Ranch – is stored in a single 1.2 million gallon storage tank originally built in 2003. Nearly 15 years later, the Agua Fria water district has outgrown the existing storage tank. A second tank is now needed and the original tank is due for important maintenance and repairs.

What's happening?

When the first tank was built at the intersection of Junipero and Hank Raymond drives in the Corte Bella community, the site was designed with enough room for a second tank just like the first one.

In October 2016, EPCOR will start work on the new tank. Once the new tank is up and running, the original tank will be repaired and refurbished. Both tanks are expected to be in service by June 2017, just in time for hot summer weather and increased demands on our water supply.

What else?

You shouldn't experience any disruption to your water service as a result of this $2.8 million project, and our crews will be working during regular construction hours, excluding holidays
