PRV Station

The Pressure Reduction Station on Olinda Road near the TDS office building has recently been rebuilt on the high and low pressure sides. This is part of a program designed for maintenance of our distribution system. The district maintains five PRV stations throughout the district where the pressures are extremey high. Our system is a gravity fed system and the pressures can exceed 150lbs+ in certain areas of the district. These stations help to maintain reduced, smooth flows in those areas.
