About Us

Back in 1979, Marvin Simpson decided to take his 23 years of experience in the water works industry to start his own business. The company was founded on the goal to provide technical services to water utilities throughout the Midwest. Not only have we improved water accountability and increased revenues throughout the Midwest, but our reach has expanded to all parts of the country. Our exceptional level of professional service and groundbreaking technology have increased revenues, improved water accountability, heightened distribution system performance, and optimized distribution system data.

Our History

Our founder Marvin E. Simpson decided to start his own water management company back in 1979 and we have grown so much since.


M.E. Simpson Co., Inc. was formed by Marvin E. Simpson, providing sales and marketing services for a regional company that provided large meter testing & repair services.

ME Simpson has expanded the services we offer to include meter testing and other water management services.


Shifted from a sales and marketing firm to a full-service firm providing large meter testing and repair with Michael Simpson and Dan Hood as the original technicians.

ME Simpson's line of water services has grown to include acoustic leak testing and valve assessment.


Began providing correlator based acoustic leak detection and valve assessment and exercising to our portfolio of services.

ME Simpson services expanded in the 1980s to include pitot testing, hydrant flow testing and more water management services.

1987 - 2007

Relocated our corporate offices to Valparaiso, IN, in order to better serve our clients. Expanded our service offerings to include fire hydrant flow testing, pitot testing, water auditing services, mapping services, and more. Increased our reach with the opening of branch offices in Waukegan, IL, and Indianapolis, IN.

Acoustic leak detection services were added to ME Simpson's list of services in the mid-2000s for even greater offerings.

2008 - 2018

Expansion of our technological footprint by teaming up with Mueller to provide their Echologics ePulse® and EchoShore-M®, high-end critical technology in acoustic leak detection and pipeline condition assessment. We also began using Trimble®’s Unity® data management system to grow our data collection and mapping services.

ME Simpson continues to look for ways to expand and offer more services more effectively for companies across the country.
