It’s that time of year again; the public works department will start winterizing the pressurized irrigation system on October 10th.

The irrigation system will be turned off for the winter and re-energized next spring. Draining the irrigation system take a few days to complete. The higher (elevation) your irrigation system is, the sooner it will be out of water. To assist with the process, the City asks that you leave your individual irrigation system shut-off valves in the “open” position; this will allow for proper drainage of the system. All private, commercial and public irrigation systems should be completely drained to prevent damage to the system’s components due to freezing water inside the pipes and valves. Prior to the system being energized in the spring, you should “close” your individual shut-off valves. Closing your valves will protect your system from water pressure spikes as the City system fills. If your sprinkler system is still in service after October 18th, please notify the City. The City will provide an investigation for a possible cross connection.

 

Park Restrooms will be open through October 31 if weather permits.
