Phoenix Water also manages the city's sewer system and handles wastewater treatment operations for 2.5 million residents in five Valley cities. Infrastructure includes 7,050 miles of water lines, 4,935 miles of sewer lines, eight treatment plants, 56,000 fire hydrants and 98,216 manholes. Phoenix's water and sewer rates are among the lowest of comparable-sized cities nationwide. Our tap water supply is in very good shape due to decades of planning and multiple water sources. The city reuses nearly all of its wastewater on crops, wetlands, and energy production.</p> <p>Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter: @PHXWater<br></p> <p> <br> </p> <p> <strong>Media Contact: </strong> <br>Athena Sanchez<br> Public Information Officer, Phoenix Water<br> Cell: 602-621-0507<br> Email: <a target="_blank" href="https://action.phoenix.gov/c1.pl?0b138aa5815e54bbcb51ae7ed94273d17e4121f81234058c">athena.sanchez@phoenix.gov</a><br></p> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/waterservicesNewswater-servicesCity of Phoenix skylineWater DeptPhoenix Water COVID 19Phoenix Water, COVID 19, Athena Sanchez602-621-0507602-261-8681athena.sanchez@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/82/Athena_Sanchez.jpgPHXWater

Second Annual Stormwater Awareness Week Jan. 25 -31, 2021https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/water-services/1714Water Services1/20/2021 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1714/newsroom_water_045.jpgSecond Annual Stormwater Awareness Week Jan. 25 -31, 2021<div class="ExternalClass4CF1F73555D345BF97EA2D56CAFF3E9D"><html> <p>Phoenix Water Services is kicking off 2021 with a focus on stormwater pollution prevention. The utility's second annual Stormwater Awareness Week is set for January 25 – 31, 2021. A <a href="https://phoenixpublicmeetings.webex.com/mw3300/mywebex/default.do?siteurl=phoenixpublicmeetings&service=6" target="_blank">virtual workshop</a> is scheduled for Thursday, January 28 at noon to help spread awareness on the importance of stormwater pollution prevention. </p> <p>A number of Arizona cities and organizations will join Phoenix for this regional effort to educate the public about the importance of preserving stormwater quality for the environment and future generations.</p> <p>"Stormwater Awareness Week encourages communities to make smart choices when it comes to preserving the quality of stormwater in our desert city," said Mayor Gallego. “With our hotter than normal summers and the lack of rain, it is important to remember that stormwater doesn't get treated and flows directly to nearby washes and retention basins, making it imperative that we preserve our systems."</p> <p>Stormwater picks up pollutants as it flows over rooftops, gutters, parking lots, driveways, and other paved surfaces. That polluted stormwater can work its way into storm drains, and eventually to surface water and retention areas.</p> <p>Simple actions to reduce stormwater pollution include:</p> <ul> <li>Disposing trash, recyclables and chemicals properly like detergent, paint, medications, etc.</li> <li>Recycling motor oil and maintaining your vehicle to prevent leaks</li> <li>Cleaning up after your pet</li> <li>Using lawn-chemicals sparingly and always following manufacturer's directions</li> <li>Properly disposing leftover paint and household chemicals at a household hazardous waste event</li> <li>And please remember - only rain in the storm drain</li> </ul> <p>"Stormwater Awareness Week highlights issues about stormwater pollution that we don't often think about," said Interim Water Services Director Eric Froberg. “Everyone has an important role in stormwater pollution prevention. Having the opportunity to host a virtual workshop for our residents will go a long way to help educate our community." </p> <p>Phoenix Water Services is hosting a virtual workshop on Thursday, January 28 at noon. to discuss the City's Stormwater Management Program and our activities to reduce stormwater pollution. Please register <a href="https://phoenixpublicmeetings.webex.com/mw3300/mywebex/default.do?siteurl=phoenixpublicmeetings&service=6" target="_blank">here</a> to participate. </p> <p>To learn more about the City of Phoenix Water Services Department Stormwater Awareness Week and what you can do as an individual or business to prevent stormwater pollution, please visit <a href="/waterservices/envservices/stormwater-program" target="_blank">phoenix.gov/stormwater</a>.​​​<br></p> <p><br></p><p><strong>Media Contact: </strong></p><p>Victoria Welch</p><p>Public Information Specialist </p><p>602-262-5060<br></p><br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/waterservicesNews
