Chandler has entered into an agreement with Intel for construction of a reclaimed-water interconnect facility, critical because it saves and reuses the desert’s most-precious commodity.
“It’s a win for Chandler, it’s a win for Intel and it’s a win for us,” said Chandler City Councilmember Matt Orlando. “We won’t waste water and it’s a great way of reutilizing our natural resource.”
City officials say the partnership with Intel is designed to optimize use of the city’s water resource.
“Currently, the city and Intel execute an annual reclaimed-water agreement to meet Intel’s yearly projected needs,” said Matt Burdick, Chandler’s communications and public affairs director. “This agreement was only possible as long as the city had adequate reclaimed-water volumes to fill Intel’s request while still meeting our other obligations.
