Cave Creek Moves Forward to Improve Water Service

The Cave Creek Town Council voted unanimously to make significant improvements to the water system that serves residents in both Cave Creek and Carefree.

The council previously approved the lease of state-of-the-art membrane water treatment units in order to enable the Town’s water supply to meet or exceed all drinking water regulations and standards. Last night, the Council agreed to hire two firms to help install the units. MGC Contractors will connect the Pall Membrane units to the existing water treatment equipment and GHD Engineers will complete the design and permitting for the new systems. READ MORE….

Cave Creek proudly serves  customers throughout the Northeast Valley. Many of our customers are within the boundaries Cave Creek, however, the town serves about 500 customers in Carefree. This arrangement has been successful for about 20 years.

Now Carefree wants to undertake a multi-million-dollar taxpayer funded effort to break up the water service delivery system. Carefree's hostile takeover of parts of the Cave Creek water system will end up costing both towns significant amounts of money. Carefree residents could be on the hook for $10 million or more to break up the water system and pay Cave Creek. All that money yet no net change in the quality of water delivered to residents of either Carefree or Cave Creek. It is time for Carefree to end this expensive folly before millions of taxpayer dollars are wasted in this fight.
