With the dedicated efforts of over 1,300 employees, Phoenix Water treats and distributes tap water to 1.7 million customers daily and manages the city's sewer system. The sewer system handles wastewater treatment operations for 2.9 million residents in five valley cities. Infrastructure includes eight water and wastewater treatment plants, nearly 300 pumps, well, lift and pressure stations, over 7,000 miles of water main, 55,000 fire hydrants and 100,00 manholes and cleanouts. Phoenix's water and sewer rates are among the lowest of comparable-sized cities nationwide. Our tap water supplies are in excellent shape due to decades of planning and multiple water sources. The city reuses nearly all of its wastewater on non-edible crops, wetlands and energy production.<br></div> <div> <br> </div> <div>Media Contact: <br></div> <div>Athena Sanchez</div><div>Public Information Officer, Phoenix Water<br>Cell: 602-621-0507</div><div><span style="font-size:10pt;line-height:107%;font-family:arial, sans-serif;background-image:initial;background-position:initial;background-size:initial;background-repeat:initial;background-attachment:initial;background-origin:initial;background-clip:initial;">Email</span><span style="box-sizing:border-box;">:</span><a href="mailto:%20athena.sanchez@phoenix.gov​​%20" target="_blank"><span style="box-sizing:border-box;"> </span><span style="font-size:10.0pt;line-height:107%;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;"><strong>athena.sanchez@phoenix.gov</strong><span style="background-image:initial;background-position:initial;background-size:initial;background-repeat:initial;background-attachment:initial;background-origin:initial;background-clip:initial;">​</span></span><strong> </strong></a> <br></div> <p>​ <br> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/waterservicesNewswater-servicesAerial photo of drought pipeline installation Water DeptDrought PipelineDrought Pipeline Mobile appAthena Sanchez602-621-0507602-261-8681athena.sanchez@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/82/Athena_Sanchez.jpgPHXWater
