Jetting Sewer Lines
Over the next few weeks, the Public Works Department will be jetting (cleaning) the sewer lines on the North side of Town. Public Works does not anticipate any problems for residents during this time; however, if complications arise, please call Public Works at 303-823-6622, extension 15.
Flushing Town's Water System
The Public Works Department, in conjunction with the Lyons Fire Protection District, will be periodically flushing the Town's water system from May to October in 2015. This will cause some pressure fluctuation in the waterlines throughout town. In the past, some homeowners and businesses have experienced some damage to their property because the water heater was not installed properly. Please take a moment to make sure the pressure relief valve has a pipe hose draining into a floor drain. The Town of Lyons will not be liable for any damages caused to property because of this issue.
Pressure Relief & Reducing Valves
A pressure relief valve is different from a pressure reducing valve, though both are recommended for stable water pressure in your home or business. Pressure relief valves continuously vent devices at a set pressure; Pressure reducing valves reduce pressure from the water supply main, to ensure constant flow of water when the main pressure fluctuates.
For more information on pressure relief and reducing valves, including the Town rebate for reducing valves, call 303-823-6622, extension 15.
