We have identified $2,300,000 of projects that will enhance the distribution system and give the District a more reliable system for the future.

    leaves and debris.
    • The toilets – if not a low-flow model, then install a
    displacement device such as a plastic bottle with
    water and pebbles. Don’t obstruct float.
    • Bathroom sink – don’t let water run while you brush
    your teeth or shave. Turn the faucet on briefly to
