Gila Bend Wastewater Treatment Plant Map

*All maps property of Google.

To access the Gila Bend Wastewater Treatment Plant, from the Old Highway 80 at it's south end near mile marker one, take Watermelon Road west a short distance.  After taking Watermelon Road west for 0.8 miles, turn right (north) on Stout Road and continue north on Stout Road for 0.5 miles until Indian Road is reached on the west side of Stout Road.  Adjacent to this there is a turnoff on the east side of Stout Road which there is a closed gate preventing any access to the wastewater plant.  Park here and get out.  Immediately south of the parking spot/turnoff, is an elevated bank that goes up and allows the birder to get views above the pond level.  Here it is necessary to set a scope up and scan the pond.
