Owner Maintenance:
It is the responsibility of the home or business owner to maintain their storage tank in a clean and sanitary manner. The City recommends the tanks be cleaned every two (2) years at a minimum.

The process to clean these tanks is as follows.

 - Turn supply valve off
 - Drain tank using existing pressure pump or drain valve
 - Remove any remaining water and debris with a wet dry vac
 - Using sodium hypochlorite (bleach intended for potable water) wipe out the inside of the tank removing any remaining sediment
 - Open inlet valve fully, this may stir up sediment in the customers service which will cause murky looking water
NOTE: If this operation is performed more often it will limit the amount of sediment within the customer’s service

• It is the responsibility of the owner to maintain the pumping system within the residence or business.
• It is the responsibility of the owner to maintain their service from their lot line to the water meter manifold assembly.

Utility Maintenance:

 - Water meter
 - Pressure reducing valve
 - Dual check valve (DUC)
 - Curb Stop (CC)
