Filters were installed in June and have been in use since then. The quality of the outgoing water from the tanks had improved greatly. We expect that there is much less buildup of sediment in the distribution lines. We will confirm this when we do the next line flushing in December or January.
We continue to test different filter cartridge configurations to optimize both how long the cartridges last and how much flow we can move through them.
With the help of the instrumentation the District has installed over the past few years, one of the things we can do is track trends in water outflow from the storage tanks. One trend we see is that on weekends we observe high night time water usage. This level of usage does not typically occur during the week nights. This indicates that there may be weekenders who have leaks.
We would like all residents to check their system for leaks. See the Conservation Page for “How to Find Leaks”
