Residential customers in five wastewater districts are seeing changes in their monthly bills — some increasing slightly, some decreasing significantly — as the Arizona Corporation Commission determines whether to consolidate them into one district.

The proposed consolidation has created a clash among people in various West Valley communities. Some are worried it could mean much higher costs, while others decry a lack of fairness in what they pay for wastewater, what leaves a house through drains and toilets.

EPCOR Water provides wastewater services to five districts: Agua Fria, Anthem, Sun City, Sun City West and Mohave. The utility is exploring the idea of consolidating the districts into one, which would stabilize rates by spreading them over a larger number of customers.
