My wife asked why the water pressure is low, after a quick check the normal pressure to my house is 85psi, today showing 35psi on my in-house water gauge.
Union Bay improvement District Water low pressure because….
A quick call to Dan McGill water superintendent and he informed me the final tie-ins to the new water treatment plant are being connected today and that Union Bay is using CVRD water connection. The pressure will remain low for most of the day.
My understanding is that there is a 2 inch pipe connection near Spindrift Rd. that connects Royston/CVRD water in case of emergency.
