I've noticed the water pressure in my house has decreased over the years, Why?
Although there may be several reasons why water pressure is decreasing, in most cases water leaks or mineral build-up within your plumbing lines cause you to experience this problem. The older the plumbing, the more likely a pressure problem. The city encounters the same problems within the water mains which is why the city is proactive on its preventative maintenance programs such as leak detection, hydrant flushing and pressure testing. For any water / sewer emergencies or non-emergencies, please contact the city's operations and maintenance contractor (CH2M-Hill/OMI, Inc.) at 505-326-1918.
