Circle City Water Company Purchase & Acquisition

  1. The Results are In
    On May 15th registered voters in Surprise were asked whether or not to authorize the purchase and acquisition of the Circle City Water Company. View the results

Circle City Water Company (CCW) is a small water service company in the northern part of Surprise’s planning area and future water service area. This acquisition would provide Surprise with the company’s existing water infrastructure and grow the city’s allocation of Colorado River water by more than 38 percent.

Colorado River water is currently the only renewable surface supply available to Surprise. Having a right to more surface water will help the city meet future demands and shortfalls.

The purchase of CCW would be funded through the sale of current and future water portfolio assets.

Educational public meetings were held in April. Thank you to the residents that came out and participated in the process.
