Maricopa/Casa Grande Region
The City of Maricopa is located approximately 12 miles south of Phoenix. The relative proximity to a significant urban center, coupled with relatively abundant and inexpensive land, were the key drivers of the real estate boom experienced by this community. In 2005, the City of Maricopa was one of the fastest growing cities in the nation.
Santa Cruz Water Company ("Santa Cruz") and Palo Verde Utilities Company ("Palo Verde")
Global Water acquired Santa Cruz and Palo Verde in 2004. The Santa Cruz and Palo Verde CC&N areas include approximately 50 square miles, which GWRI believes provide further opportunities for growth once development returns to these areas and water and wastewater utility services are required. Most of the Santa Cruz and Palo Verde infrastructure is less than six years old, and all of it is less than 10 years old.
Santa Cruz and Palo Verde provide water and wastewater services, respectively, under an innovative public private partnership memorandum of understanding with the City of Maricopa in Pinal County. A similar memorandum of understanding was signed with the City of Casa Grande to partner in providing water, wastewater, and recycled water services to a 100 square mile region of anticipated growth.
