Bonita Water Company currently serves about 50 customers.

Potable water is available to all properties in Bonita Creek. The water is pumped from Bonita Creek near the forest service boundary and treated as follows:


  • A metered alum solution is injected into the pumped water near the intake and passed through a static mixer. The alum coagulates the small particulates allowing the water to be filtered more effectively.
  • The water is then filtered through a large sand filter, followed by a multimedia filter and lastly, a  cartridge finishing filter.
  • The water then passes through an ultra-violet purification system and a computerized turbimeter tests the water clarity. Should the turbidity exceed acceptable limits, the system is automatically shut down.
  • A metered amount of chlorine is injected into the water as it is sent to the storage tanks.
  • From the tanks the distribution system directs the potable water throughout the community.


The  water is tested monthly and a copy of the results are sent directly to the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality ( ADEQ) which also conducts annual inspections to make sure the system is in compliance with all governmental standards.

All ADEQ water testing reports can be seen by going to the following link:
