SAN FRANCISCO — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the Colorado River Sewer System Joint Venture, located in Parker, Arizona, has entered into an agreement with EPA, according to a press release.

The agreement is to upgrade their wastewater treatment system to meet stringent water quality standards, stated the release.
