Insta-Valve 250 Helps Keep the Water on for Residents During COVID-19 Pandemic

Santa Clara, CA — The Insta-Valve 250 provided targeted shutdown without impacting service to customers.

As part of a planned maintenance project, the City of Santa Clara was to cut into an existing water distribution line to connect another with a new T-junction. Utilizing traditional methods, this project would require a shutdown that would interrupt service to about 10 homes within the area.

However, the state of California was in the midst of a shelter-in-place order as part of their actions to contain and prevent the spread of COVID-19. The city could not disrupt service to customers given the circumstances, especially when more residents would be home during the time of repair due to the stay-at-home order.
