EPCOR to Explain Why Anthem’s New Water Rates Are So High

Anthem residents east of I-17 can hear from EPCOR and ask questions about the new water rates, which rose 35 percent for a typical customer on April 1, based on a decision by the Arizona Corporation Commission. Anthem residents now pay roughly double what EPCOR’s Sun City West residents pay.

The interim rates will be in place until a permanent rate case is decided, likely more than a year from now. However, AZCC commissioner Andy Tobin has questioned the legality of the new rates and his commission’s rush to approve them. “I would not be surprised if the citizens joined together in a rate referendum in order to make their voices more clearly heard,” Tobin said in a recent statement.
