Almost 400 ALPHA restrained joint ends and hydrant bases are being installed as part of the Houtzdale Municipal Authority’s distribution replacement project.

What’s better than one AMERICAN Flow Control® valve or hydrant with an ALPHA™ restrained joint end? How about almost 400? The Houtzdale Municipal Authority is installing more than 300 resilient wedge gate valves with ALPHA restrained joint ends and almost 60 American-Darling® B-62-B fire hydrants with ALPHA bases as part of the water authority’s distribution replacement project. Work began June 2019 and is expected to be completed June 2020.

“We are replacing about 22% of our system,” said Houtzdale Water Superintendent John Gallagher. “Anything that is 25 years or older is being replaced to reduce our unaccounted for water and strengthen our aging water infrastructure.”
