Abstract: (No paper) The Del Webb Corporation is currently building a master planned development on the northern edge of Maricopa County. The development plan includes a water campus housing a water treatment plant and a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) to serve the development, which will consist of 11,000 homes on 5,661 acres. The ultimate build-out capacity of the water plant will be 7 mgd and the ultimate build-out of the wastewater treatment plant will be 4.5 mgd. The site is generally located east of Interstate 17, between Pioneer Road and Desert Hills Road. Raw Central Arizona Project (CAP) water is pumped from the CAP canal immediately downstream of Lake Pleasant to the water campus site. Two surface impoundments will store raw CAP water for treatment while a slip stream will be sent to downstream impoundments where the water will be pumped to irrigation or to recharge.
