Pressure Reducing Valves

Town of Lyons Resolution 2011-13 to Implement a Rebate Program for Installation of Pressure Reducing Valves (PRV)

PRV Information pdf

PRV Application


The Town of Lyons Public Works Department, in conjunction with the Lyons Fire Protection District, periodically flushes the Town's water system. 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 (please see diagram below). The Town of Lyons will not be liable for any damages caused to property because of this issue.

Thank you for your cooperation with checking your hot water heater.
