During the conceptual design stage of the Palm Valley Water Recycling Facility project, PERC Water provided the City of Goodyear, Arizona with a guaranteed fixed cost, construction schedule and value engineering. Phase I was completed with a 4.1 MGD capacity that treats the wastewater to class A+ effluent, meets the highest water quality standards and can support approximately 16,400 homes. Projected future phases will allow for an ultimate capacity of 8.2 MGD, supporting approximately 32,800 homes. The Design-Build-Operate approach allowed the developers and the city to implement Class A+ treatment in less than 18 months from start to finish.

PERC Water partnered with members of the community and the West Valley Fine Arts Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to championing arts education, to build a community park on the south and west sides of the facility. The park, which features walking paths with educational placards, gazebos and a variety of water fountains and streams, offers visitors a fun and educational experience on how wastewater is treated and reused in their community. PERC Water also enlisted local high school students to help create an art piece to be featured in the center of the park. The piece, titled “Recyclamation,” was given special recognition in the 23rd Annual Environmental Excellence Awards for “Environmental Education/Communication Educators, Students and Non-Profit Organizations.”

The Valley Forward Association awarded the Palm Valley Water Recycling Facility with the Environmental Excellence Award for its outstanding contribution to its physical environment, noting that our process allows for “the smallest footprint in the industry.” The facility was praised by the association for its “high-quality, usable effluent,” considered a “rare and precious resource to all of Arizona,” and for its innovative technology which creates “no offsite odor,” making “it possible to locate the facility essentially in the center of (the) community.” Click here to learn more about the Environmental Excellence Award in our Awards section.
