Insta-Valve 250 Provides Targeted Control Without System Shutdown

Hartford, CT and Surrounding Area — Hydra-Stop’s solution allowed targeted control for planned maintenance and repair.

MDC is a water utility that serves a densely populated region of Connecticut that also has a significant amount of commercial and industrial facilities. Like so many water utilities within the U.S., MDC has a century-old infrastructure which requires a proactive and preventative maintenance approach.

When developing their maintenance plan, MDC evaluated their existing valves to determine location and condition as well as the impact of shutdown within the area to preform their repairs. Unfortunately, when dealing with an aging infrastructure, many existing valves are inoperable which can cause a shutdown expansion, affecting more customers who are reliant on water.
