Water district board meets Sept. 15 in Apache Junction council chambers

Posted

An update on an agreement with the sewer district for the sale of long-term storage credits is to be discussed at the Sept. 15 meeting of the Apache Junction Water Utilities Community Facilities District board.

Apache Junction City Council members serve as the water utilities community facilities district board.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Apache Junction City Council Chambers, 300 E. Superstition Blvd.

In other business, the water district board is to:

  • Be updated on a HealthEquity / WageWorks health care flexible spending account.
  • Hear an update from Fred Schneider of Arizona Water Co.
  • Discuss and vote on declaring a portion of the public utility easement adjacent to 1075 S. Cortez Road along 11th Avenue between Cortez and Stagecoach roads in Apache Junction as no longer necessary for public use as a public utility easement and that it be extinguished.

The water district supplies well water –--- groundwater --- pumped from the Eastern Salt River Sub-Basin Aquifer, which flows southwesterly under Apache Junction and its surrounding areas. The groundwater is treated for arsenic removal where necessary, disinfected with chlorine, pumped into storage tanks and blended with Colorado River water transported through the CAP canal system, according to ajwaterdistrict.org.
