Insta-Valve 250 Provides Targeted Control Without System Shutdown

Hartford, CT and Surrounding Area – MDC is a provider of water and sewer services to about 450,000 residents. Residents, businesses, and visitors all rely on the dedication of the men and women of MDC to keep their neighborhood running through its utility services.

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.

MDC ultimately decided that valve insertion could solve many of their maintenance issues and concerns, and — after thoroughly researching their options — they chose Hydra-Stop’s Insta-Valve line of insertion valve solutions. To read their full story, download the project brief.
