Before the pressure increase, water pressure for residents of Huber Heights who live north of Interstate 70 was at 40 psi. With the current issues, water pressure is back to 40 psi.
Huber Heights City Engineer Russ Bergman said 40 psi is typically too low for most businesses and households, which is why the city pursued the project in the first place.
The construction of three booster stations, valves and the other necessary equipment was completed earlier this year, and the city has slowly been increasing the water pressure since June.

To avoid having this issue again, the city is relocating the main communication point of the system and adding a back up connection, Schommer said.
Bergman said the city has a consultant coming in this week to work out network issues with the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. Bergman said the issues last week and this past weekend are due to an Internet problem and not a problem with the actual water system.
The SCADA system also went out in July, Bergman previously told this paper.
