National Engineering and Environmental Firm
Gives Back to Arizona Water Community

Full-service engineering and environmental services firm offers training
to well operators.

Phoenix, AZ – Throughout February and March of this year, the AZ Water Utility Business and local companies offered basic information and training to operators who manage groundwater pumping wells. These forums were held in Tucson, Goodyear and Scottsdale and can be seen again at the Annual Conference, ‘AZ Water Association 91st Annual Conference & Exhibition,’ May 2 – 4, 2018 at the Phoenix Convention Center.

According to Nathan E. Miller, Arizona Operations Manager, “The presentation given at these various locations, Groundwater Wells: Practical Knowledge, highlights the important characteristics of groundwater well pumping and the aquifer. Groundwater production wells supply drinking water to communities throughout Arizona. The details of well pumping can often seem mysterious, but this presentation provides the operators fundamentals to operate and maintain water production wells.”

The Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) regulates all groundwater wells in Arizona. Well regulations are vital to the proper management and protection of our groundwater. Well construction standards help prevent contamination of wells and the surrounding groundwater.

Jayne Warne, PE, President, states, “Matrix is pleased to utilize technology and science to give back to the water community in Arizona. As a desert state, all efforts to provide updated training is essential to ensure against drought and other adverse conditions.” To speak with and/or set up an interview with Matrix, please contact Amy Delman, Amy Delman Public Relations, LLC, 201.563.4614 or
