 Pressurized Irrigation System (Posted October 15, 2020)

The pressurized irrigation system is shut off for the season. The system will take a couple of days for all of the lines to drain. The City recommends you winterize your sprinkler system and shut off your pressurized irrigation and sprinkler system valves. By doing this it will help avoid unnecessary flooding in the spring.  

Pressurized Irrigation System (Posted October 1, 2020)

Salem City Residents, as the 2020 water season comes to an end the Highline Canal is the main source of water used in the pressurized irrigation system.  The Canal Company has ended their water season on September 30th.  This means that the PI ponds are no longer being filled with the canal water.

 It is our goal to extend the outdoor water season as long as possible.   In order to do this, we need Salem City residents help.  Last night was the first night with no canal water, due to outdoor water usage both of the PI ponds were drained by fifty percent.  We need all residents to please cut back on your outdoor watering habits and schedule.  With the cooler temperatures, less water is needed to keep your yard lush and green.  In order to continue the outdoor water season longer, we need to work together to conserve this water.   If we are unable to reduce our water usage, the PI system will be shut off for the year.  Thank you for your help in this matter!

Installation of Pressurized Irrigation Meters

Starting Sept. 28th Salem City will have our water crew starting the install of PI Meters on each PI service in town. This install will happen starting now and over the next year.  You will notice two to four City employees working in your PI box.  They will leave your box upgraded with a meter and landscape repairs.  Most upgrades take one to two business days from start to finish. 

This project will take approximately one year to complete.  After the installation is complete the City will begin developing a rate structure and establish an estimated date to start billing for usage.  The City will notify customers when they can expect to see the new PI rate structure on their utility bill.
