The town of Queen Creek could help ensure water keeps flowing for Johnson Utilities customers in the southeast Valley and that new construction can progress in the area by providing water and taking over part of the utility’s sewer territory, a town official said Tuesday.

Arizona Corporation Commissioners voted Tuesday to hold hearings on Queen Creek’s request to take over portions of the company’s territory that are undeveloped but slated for development.

And the town also is working on a plan to provide water to Johnson Utilities, which is now being run by EPCOR USA following a series of service issues that included customer’s taps running dry and frequent sewer overflows and other issues with the company’s treatment plants.
