 January Press Release At WCID #12: Tank Fill Controls

Flow Control
Flow Control

A study has revealed that if additional flow controls were installed at each water district’s ground storage tanks along with a remote monitoring system, it may be possible to meet each district’s water demand without adversely  impacting the other districts ability to receive their water.

The goal is to complete construction before summer arrives.
