Previous Next

The Town of Oacoma installed a parallel treated water line into the town to minimize pressure variation during periods of high water use. A new treated water standpipe was also installed to eliminate low water pressure complaints from home-owners located in the higher elevations of town. This was accomplished by installation of a taller standpipe, creating two separate pressure zones. A new pump station was necessary to transfer treated water from the lower pressure zone to the higher zone. The standpipe has the capacity to continue providing fire protection for these customers fed from the higher pressure zone.
