Northern New Jersey – This utility is a provider of water services to thousands of customers — over 11,000 in the area of work. Residents, businesses, and visitors all rely on the dedication of the men and women of who keep the water running for this service area.
As part of a proactive maintenance program, a large water utility servicing northern New Jersey identified the need for repairs on a 12” water distribution line. Unfortunately, the nearby valve required to isolate the area of repair was over 75 years old and no longer operable.
With this valve out of commission, the crew would need to expand their shutdown area to divert water flow from their work site. However, completing this shut down would adversely affect many customers, including a 128-bed hospital.
Thanks to proactive planning and the installation of the Insta-Valve 250, this water utility was able to ensure the hospital remains operational — even if a nearby emergency repair should arise.
