The Town of Gilbert, AZ, located 20 miles southeast of central Phoenix, grew from a population of fewer than 2,000 in 1970 to 255,000 in 2017, making it one of the most populous and fastest growing incorporated municipalities in the nation.
As population growth exploded, so did the need to provide cost-effective and efficient operation at Gilbert’s Neely Wastewater Reclamation Facility (WRF). The challenge was how to keep up with demand while enhancing service levels and ensuring efficiencies of operational costs.
