The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) issued a Water Quality Advisory on January 11, 2019 for the unpermitted discharge of recycled water from Johnson Utilities’ Pecan Water Reclamation Plant into Queen Creek (the wash) in the San Tan Valley area. EPCOR notified ADEQ that the discharge has stopped and this advisory is no longer in effect.

EPCOR estimates a total release of 15.36 million gallons between January 9 and 17, 2019. There was no impact to Johnson Utilities’ drinking water systems and there was NOT a release of untreated sewage into the environment.

As work continues on the International Outfall Interceptor (IOI) and the Nogales Wash, Santa Cruz County Health Services continues to remind the public to stay out of the Nogales Wash and Santa Cruz River due to continued health concerns and water quality. Health Officials continue to recommend to those who live within the county, along the Santa Cruz River, and have a private well within 100 ft. of the waterway have their wells tested for contamination.
