At Liberty, our purpose is to sustain energy and water for life. Our Sustainable Effluent to Aquifer Project (SEAP) is currently comprised of four large (2.2 acres) basins. Liberty pumps A+ quality effluent water into each of the basins, where it seeps back into the ground, which is a natural water filter, eventually refilling the aquifer. This helps to protect and safeguard our communities’ potable water supply for future use. Liberty has increased the capacity of another basin to allow effluent to be introduced to the aquifer below by adding trenches and boreholes to increase the infiltration rate.
Infrastructure Investments - Residential - Arizona Water - Liberty
Liberty is proud to deliver safe, clean, and reliable water to our customers in the Avondale, Glendale, Goodyear, Litchfield Park, Surprise, and Wittmann communities. Water is one of our most precious resources, and our investments in our water system allow us to continue providing this vital resource today and tomorrow.
Strengthening the Reliability of Our Water System
Liberty invests in the communities we serve to provide safe, reliable services for you and your family. Not only is this imperative for your health, but also for the health of the community. Investments allow us to improve our current system and support future residential and business growth.
Project Spotlight - Sarival Water Reclamation Facility
When operational in 2024, Liberty’s Sarival Water Reclamation Facility (“Sarival WRF”) will be able to treat 4 million gallons per day (MGD), bringing the total wastewater treatment capacity for Liberty – Litchfield Park to 10.55 MGD. This will allow Liberty to better meet the demands and needs of our growing Goodyear and Litchfield Park communities.
The Sarival WRF will also help support Liberty’s sustainability initiatives by producing Class A+ quality effluent, the highest level of reclaimed water, which can replace potable water for activities such as park or landscape irrigation, artificial lakes or other water features, and more.
The reclaimed water treated by the Sarival WRF will also be recharged back into the local groundwater aquifer at our Sustainable Effluent to Aquifer Project (SEAP). This will help replenish groundwater levels and supplement our water supplies, supporting our customers’ potable water needs and helping our communities to be more resilient during times of drought.
As our communities continue to develop and grow, our new water reclamation facility will help Liberty to continue to provide safe, reliable wastewater service to our customers, and uphold our commitment to environmental stewardship.

Marbella Well #2 has been drilled and the well site is under construction. This well will provide about 350 GPM of drinking water that will be treated at the Marbella Water Campus before being distributed to our system.
Well 19B has been drilled and the Well Site is under design. This well will provide about 800 GPM of drinking water that will be treated using a Reverse Osmosis facility before being distributed to our system.
Monument Point Well has been drilled and we are working on a land acquisition to expand the well site to provide enough room for a treatment facility. This well will provide about 600 GPM of drinking water that will be treated on site before being distributed to our system.
To improve system reliability and security of infrastructure in Surprise, Liberty erected a new parameter block wall to well sites.
