The Moorehand service are provides water to over 70 customers in South Anchorage. This service area was historically served by a pair of groundwater wells, however those wells produce arsenic in concentrations that are no longer considered safe by the EPA. Due to the high cost of designing and building an arsenic treatment facility, continuing to use the two wells was determined to be infeasible. Instead, a connection to the city water supply was installed and the wells left inactive. Currently, the Moorehand service area purchases all of its water from Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility (AWWU) and delivers that water to its customers.
