A failure at the Climax Pump Station in the Navajo Community neighborhood of San Carlos resulted in the loss of water pressure in a portion of the area, leading to yesterday’s boil water advisory. Whenever pressure isn’t maintained, there is a possibility of water siphoning back into the delivery system from household and landscape plumbing, so a boil water order is issued until pressure is restored and tests confirm water quality.During the outage, city workers connected a portable pump to nearby hydrants to maintain pressure so that faucets would still function.Here, someone proposed to save water by reducing the pressure in the net.
