Water Pressure Subsidy Policy

Policy Manual - Section II  - Subsection X

In an effort to ensure that all residents have sufficient water pressure to carry out their daily activities the Town will be providing a subsidy to residents who encounter lower than normal water pressure levels.

The following are guiding principles to determine water pressure issues and solutions:

1. The Town will check water pressure at a resident on several occasions by connecting a pressure gauge to the outside water connection belonging to the property owner to determine water pressure to the property.

2. Minimum water pressure that would receive a subsidy would be 18 psi or less. Anyone 19 psi or greater will not qualify for a subsidy. This will be determined by staff of the Town of St. Anthony. Pressure cannot be impacted
by valves closed off or leaks in the immediate area.

3. A Water Pressure Subsidy will be issued on a one time only basis for a particular property, irregardless of ownership changes.

4. For those qualifying for a subsidy, the following would have to be completed:

a. The property owner would be required to purchase and install a water pump and tank at their own expense. Once installed, all associated invoices and a picture of the pump must be forwarded to the Town of St. Anthony. After a review is completed the Town would than issue a one time payment of $400.00 to the property owner as subsidy for the pump. If taxes are outstanding against the property or individual, the $400.00 subsidy would be placed against the outstanding account.

b. All maintenance, repairs and replacement work and cost would be the sole responsibility of the property owner.

c. The Town assumes no legal obligation for defects, setup and or other issues pertaining to the pump installation, operation and placement.

The Town of St. Anthony adopted the Water Pressure Subsidy Policy on 26th day of May in the year 2010. Motion Number 97-2010
