Re: Property rights in treated sewage effluent

Ralph -

You may find it interesting to contact the City of Phoenix and Arizona
Public Service regarding the use of 90mgd of secondary effluent from the
91st Avenue Wastewater Treatment Plant for cooling water at Palo Verde
Nuclear Generating Station.  

Prior to the project, this effluent had been discharged into the Salt
River, with a certain amount then being withdrawn into an irrigation
system called the Buckeye Canal.  Provisions had to be built into the
Palo Verde design to protect the prior water use rights of both the Salt
River raparian habitat and the Buckeye Canal water users.
