Anthem Community Council will hold a special meeting Thursday, Feb. 22 to consider a revised plan from EPCOR for a water-hauling station to serve New River and Desert Hills residents.
EPCOR drafted the revision after council requested changes to an earlier site plan submitted in January. “Additionally, the ACC is requiring EPCOR to mail meeting notices and the site plan to property owners (both Anthem and New River/Desert Hills) within 600 feet of the proposed site,” according to a statement from council.
The plot, to be leased by EPCOR, is roughly an acre of Anthem-owned land at the eastern edge of town. Access for water-hauling trucks will be from Desert Hills Drive.

Rural residents plan to attend the meeting in support of the project, said Julie Elliott, president of New River/Desert Hills Water, a grassroots group that has been working on a solution since September.
If it’s approved, EPCOR will aim to finish the station before April 30, when the City of Phoenix plans to stop allowing water haulers access to city hydrants for water delivery to rural residents who lack working wells.
“We understand how important this project is and we’re continuing to move forward with our projected timeline to have the station built and in service by the end of April,” said Troy Day, vice president of Arizona operations for the utility.
