My water pressure has dropped off and seems to fluctuate. What could this be?

The water distribution system has various pressure zones. Your water pressure will normally vary only slightly within each zone. If you are seeing a drop or increase in your water pressure, there could be a problem in your building. Most buildings are required to have a pressure-reducing valve installed. These valves maintain a set pressure and when they fail can cause either an increase or a decrease in pressure. Call Public Works at 208-746-0593 to assist in determining your problem.
