Chandler Firsts

The nation’s first privatized wastewater treatment facility opened in Chandler in 1986 and our first reverse osmosis plant opened in 1996. Today, 100 percent of wastewater is treated for irrigation and industrial uses. Our interconnected distribution system, wells and allocation policy provides agility when adapting to water availability and demand.
