Pressurized Irrigation

NOTICE: No Watering 10am-6pm

The City has adopted an ordinance which prohibits outdoor watering between the hours of 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. This applies to the drinking water system and the pressurized irrigation system. This is not a temporary or seasonal restriction. This restriction applies every day all year round from this time forth. Violation is a Class C misdemeanor.

As you are all well aware we have been constructing the pressurized irrigation system for some time now. The system will be operational this spring. Below is a diagram that illustrates a typical residential connection to the pressurized irrigation system. It also shows a typical disconnect from the drinking water (culinary) system. It is unlawful for these two systems to be connected at the same time even with a shut off valve in-between the two systems. The two systems must be physically disconnected from one another to avoid potential contamination.

Please call Salem City at 423-2770 and schedule an inspection before you bury your piping systems. Our water department is gearing up for a busy summer getting the new system into operation and is ready to help however we can to make this transition as smooth and safe as possible.
