Water Distribution System Valve Exercising Assessment
The importance of the Valve Assessment program is apparent when emergencies arise and your personnel are unable to either locate or close a valve(s) during a water main break. The same problem occurs when valves that are normally closed need to be opened during a firefighting effort. These situations can occur when valves are not exercised regularly. (Every 1-2 years)
The Water Distribution System Valve Assessment program is conducted in the field by our Project Team. The operation and location details of each valve will be noted and compiled in a "Valve Assessment Report" and submitted to your office.
The valve information can then be entered into Polcon Pro-Valve®, an online database designed and exclusively marketed by M.E. Simpson Co., Inc.
