Water Pressure

Your water pressure is determined by the elevation of water towers in relation to the elevation of your home. The lower the elevation of your home compared to the tower elevation, the higher your water pressure will be.

Some areas of Lakeville have relatively high water pressure. Homes with high pressure have a pressure reducing valve (PRV) in place to control pressure levels. If you notice banging pipes, or a "water hammer," it is possible your PRV has malfunctioned.
