Scottsdale was mostly on the sidelines during the first week of an Arizona Corporation Commission hearing on utility EPCOR’s proposal for providing water to the Rio Valley Foothills area.

Last week’s hearing was highlighted by debates among residents who live on unincorporated county land about the impact of the utility’s involvement.

In October, EPCOR filed an application with the commission “for approval of its proposed standpipe water tariff; and establishment of a certificate of convenience and necessity for standpipe water service only to the Rio Verde Foothills Community.”

After months of preliminary motions and conferences, the hearing began April 10.

The hearing is scheduled to continue Tuesday, April 18.
