How does water move through the city?

The City has to push water from the northwest part of the City to our major industrial partners on the SE side of the City.  That means that you need to have a fairly high-pressure level on the water as it leaves the plant.  The means that the lines closer to the plant will experience a higher-pressure level than line further from the plant.
