July 9, 2014 – Pressurized irrigation (PI) demands continue to be high throughout the city. The lower PI zone experiences dramatic nightly drawdowns, decreasing pressures throughout the zone. Pressures are stabilizing during the day. If you experience low pressures and flow during the peak demand times from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m., please check your system during non-peak hours at 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. to determine if your pressures and flows normalize.
The Public Works Department continues to work on the lower zone system and has augmented the system with flows from the Central Utah Water Conservancy District. Additionally, system mainlines connecting the lower zone to the supply pond were flushed today to clear any potential restriction. The flushing of mainlines may discharge additional debris in the system. It is recommended that irrigation users check and clean individual system filters following this action.
