The price to close a sewer plant

By Renata Cló | Arizona Republic

After more than a decade petitioning against the smell coming from a wastewater treatment plant and finally succeeding to get the plant shut down, residents in Carefree and north Scottsdale will get an increase in their sewer bill.

Liberty Utilities, which owns Black Mountain Sewer, applied for the rate increase with the Arizona Corporation Commission in 2019 as a way to recover funds spent closing its wastewater treatment plant near the Boulders Resort & Spa in 2018.

The company first sought a 32% rate hike, or $25.44 per month, plus a $4.26 surcharge, which would have increased the residential customers’ fixed-rate bills from $79.50 to $109.20 per month.
