Post Kitchen Sink

The water just trickles out of my kitchen sink. I think I turned the water off by accident. Is the shut off value the one with the red knob? I tried turning that one CCW to no avail. Last week my landlord sent over a plummer to put in new lines under the sink. (I had the same problem then). Also is no low water pressure, plummer stated there was sand in the filters. A day later the water pressure was back to low. If the red knob is the water value, how do I get the water turned back on. As you can see I don't know much about plumming.

Thank you,
Carol A.

Quite frequently the aerator gets clogged following plumbing work on supply lines. It's the very end of the faucet that unscrews and has a screen in it plus some other small parts. Unscrew it and carefully disassemble it - noting where the parts go and in what direction.... clean the parts and reassemble (after... you flush the faucet system thoroughly without the aerator attached).
