During the three-year construction of the Deer Valley Water Treatment Plant East Basins Reconstruction project, over 80 percent of the 150 workers on the project resided in the West Valley. The water treatment plant produces 25% more water than the previous plant and is able to produce more water on a smaller footprint using less energy than before. This benefits the community by allowing for growth of the West Valley without putting strains on water production.
The new treatment plant produces a larger amount of high-quality water to the residents of the West Valley. This water is used in residential dwellings, commercial spaces, restaurants, retail locations and landscaping to provide for the residents and community in the area.
