WUWC-Phoenix1The City of Phoenix Water Services Department is a leader in water conservation and in the sustainable management of water supplies.  The Department functions as the nation's tenth largest potable water utility, providing high quality, reliable, and cost effective water deliveries to businesses and approximately 1.5 million residents within a service area of 540 square miles.  Water Services also manages Phoenix's sewer collection system, and treats wastewater for 2.5 million residents in the Valley of the Sun.  

The massive infrastructure needed to serve public health and safety includes 7,000 miles of water lines, 5,000 miles of sewer lines, seven treatment plants, 50,000 fire hydrants and 90,000 manholes.  Phoenix’s water supply is strong and sustainable as a result of multiple water sources and a logical, methodical approach to supply planning, infrastructure management, conservation, and drought preparation.  WUWC-Phoenix2

All of the city’s highly treated wastewater is recycled and reused for crops, wetlands, aquifer recharge, and energy production at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station.  Phoenix’s water and sewer rates are among the lowest of large cities nationwide.
