Mesa residents in the southeast part of the city may not realize it, but they’ve likely been drinking water from a different tap the last few months.
More specifically, water from a different treatment plant.
The Signal Butte Water Treatment Plant, the largest capital project in Mesa history, has officially been dedicated a few months after it began serving the city’s residents who live roughly from the U.S. 60 south to Germann Road and Meridian to Power roads.
The $126-million facility at Signal Butte and Elliot roads has increased the city’s water capacity by 24 million gallons per day with an expansion capability to 48 million gallons per day when needed.
