Member Update: April 2021
There have been several substantial repair incidents so far in 2021, including recurring electrical problems on ICR well #2 and a large emergency repair to an 8-inch delivery main in TRR. The incidents have been impetus for the board to examine the future inventory requirements for stocked spares.
In May, the ICWC will introduce two more payment options for paying your monthly water bill. The company will now be set up to take credit cards for bill payment. The cost will be covered by a small convenience fee and this will be tiered by amount. In addition, ICWC will now appear as e-pay enabled in all bank/online bill-pay systems, and if selected, no paper check will be sent to ICWC from your bank. This will reduce overhead and errors. Instructions for use of these systems will be included in the May billing as well as in the email-bill and on the website.
The ICR#1 pumphouse structure project is underway and should be fully complete by the end of May. This will provide sufficient space for performing maintenance work on the well head.
The last item outstanding with the ACC order from last year’s re-incorporation of the utility is the franchise agreement with the county. It is required to be completed within 2 years of the asset transfer date. This agreement allows ICWC to dig up county -maintained streets to install or repair services. The application will be completed and submitted this month. It includes a legal description of our service area, a map of our service area and proof of insurance. The new agreement will take effect on October 5th 2021.
Monitoring of infrastructure installation in Whispering Canyon phase 5 continues as planned. The developer has informed ICWC that they currently have all approvals to continue with phases 6 and 7.
The ACC requested 2021 Rate case has kicked off and is in information gathering mode. The process and justification, as well as the expected outcomes will be presented as part of the annual meeting, and potentially at HOA meetings in areas that have them.
The board has confirmed Tuesday June 15th as the date for the ICWC annual meeting. Due to remaining COVID restrictions on large gatherings, the meeting will have both in-person and online attendance options. The required 30- day meeting notice will be sent out in early May via a special mailing and it will be posted to the website.
The ICWC board has produced a draft statement of work for an engineering review and documentation of our system. The SOW will go to two civil engineering firms for bids. The SOW and the engineering contract will be posted to the website when finalized, as will the final report.
The board is commencing participation in an APS program which will substantially reimburse the cost of variable frequency drives for all of our well pump motors. This will reduce our power consumption by up to 20% on those pump motors.
ICRWUA Conversion to ICR Lot 1-180 ARC
Though this is not ICWC business per se, there were some of our ICWC members who felt that the reincorporation of the ICRWUA to ICWC last year (for liability reasons) had harmed them by eliminating the Architecture review function stated in their CC&Rs. The legacy ICRWUA board proposed a process whereby that entity could be modified to allow the ARC to be reinstated outside of the ICWC utility. A summary of the final actions performed to turn the ICRWUA entity over to the ICR Lot 1-180 property owners appears under a separate tab under the 2021 Board meetings section of the website. That entity now has a board of its own and appointments have been made to the ARC sub-committee. They are now responsible for informing all present and future property owners of the re-instatement and the review process for architectural changes in that development. This group has no affiliation to the ICWC water utility.
If you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to contact a member of the board.

ABOUT INSCRIPTION CANYON WATER COMPANY
Inscription Canyon Water Company was formed in October of 2020. It came about as a successor to the Inscription Canyon Water Users Association, which was originally formed as a non-profit water company in 1995. This re-incorporation was performed to eliminate a legacy legal linkage between the ICRWUA and an HOA from one of the original developments in our community.
At the time of formation of the original non-profit utility, the company served a territory including the Inscription Canyon Subdivision, under authority of and regulation by the Arizona Corporation Commission.
The water company is owned by members within the subdivisions it serves. It presently is governed by a five-member board of directors elected by the members. The board members are volunteers, elected for a two-year term. Day to day management, (including billing and accounting) and water systems operations are provided under contract agreements. The Association has no employees. Read more >>
