MITIGATING PRESSURE AROUND THE DISTRICT
As you look around at the topography of our service area you can see that many portions of the District are hilly. Due to these drastic increases in elevation these areas are subject to higher water pressure than other, flatter regions. While our average system pressure is just over 150 PSI, we do have areas that are over 400 PSI!
High system water pressure is necessary to move water from hilltop to hilltop, but the District is working to reduce the pressure in our residential areas. We have a program to install large pressure regulators to serve entire neighborhoods. We expect to install eight or more of these this year with more in upcoming years.
