The Apache Junction Water District 2021 water quality report is now available.
The report, which was released in June, can be accessed online at ajwaterdistrict.org/water-quality-reports-2 or customers can request a printed copy by calling 480-982-6030 or by email at email@example.com.
This annual report, also known as the consumer confidence report, provides detailed information about the quality of drinking water supplied by the water district.
Following compliance standards established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, the report describes what drinking water contaminants were tested for, detected, and their levels of detection during the calendar year of 2021.
The Apache Junction Water District supplies well water (groundwater) pumped from the Eastern Salt River Sub-Basin Aquifer which flows southwesterly under Apache Junction and its surrounding areas. The groundwater is treated for arsenic removal where necessary, disinfected with chlorine, pumped into storage tanks and blended with Colorado River (surface) water.
The surface water is transported through the Central Arizona Project canal system and filtered and purified at the Superstition Area Water Plant before being introduced into the distribution system.
The water district can also receive treated CAP water from the city of Mesa through an interconnect for a backup supply of water, if needed.
