Pateros Water User,
Our water system is gravity feed, and with the completion of the new reservoir on Cemetery Road, water pressure at your house went up by over 20 psi in December. Residents in the lowest pressure zones along Riverside Drive and in the downtown are at about 75-80 psi, whereas residents along Ives Street are at about 50 psi, depending on the elevation of your house in relationship to the new reservoir. Water consumption is up by 52% in the month of April compared to April 2018.
New pressures will increase the amount of water your irrigation systems use. Please adjust the amount of time, days, and nozzles so that your irrigation systems water efficiently, but don’t waste water. If you have questions call Jord at City Hall, 923-2571
