Customers who lived under troubled Johnson Utilities may get millions in repayments

Johnson Utilities  has about 23,000 water  and 35,000 wastewater customers in Pinal County.

Tens of thousands of customers of the former Johnson Utilities in the East Valley could get repaid about $10 million following years of service problems with the utility.

The embattled water and sewer company, which was sold earlier this year, agreed to the repayment in a court settlement. Customers are expected to get their payments through credits on their utility bills if a judge approves the settlement.

The suit alleged water and wastewater customers overpaid on utility bills, reviving a number of complaints that federal prosecutors made of Johnson in a bribery trial that ended with a deadlocked jury in July 2018.
