Infrastructure and your water service
Aging water infrastructure is a national, trillion-dollar issue. It's also a local issue. To keep your service reliable and your water quality high and safe, we must maintain, fix and replace the wells, pumps, pipes and treatment facilities that bring your water to you. The costs to purchase water, and to power the plants and systems that treat and deliver it to you, are also increasing.
Over the next decade, EPCOR needs to spend more than $40 million to keep our water systems operating safely and reliably. Because the underground aquifer that water comes from is declining, we also need more wells to provide enough water to meet demand. We now have 72 wells, twice as many as were needed 20 years ago. But those 72 wells produce the same amount of water that half the amount of wells did 20 years.
What about conservation programs?
Conservation is important to EPCOR, and our Clovis customers are very water conscious. We've updated the existing rebate program and also included programs to help our customers and educate the next generation through elementary school programs.
