Managing Drought And Reducing Water Loss During System Maintenance And Repair

Source: Hydra-Stop

When potable water is at a premium, any kind of system maintenance or repair can become a nightmare. Under the best of conditions, a repair can be costly in terms of both money and water loss. But during a drought, it can be a public relations nightmare. 

Public water systems can avoid both the cost and the terrible optics associated with repairs during drought conditions by using insertion valves. An insertion valve can reduce the amount of water lost during a repair by several orders of magnitude. These valves allow utilities to isolate the area of maintenance or repair while maintaining service to the rest of the network. The installation process results in minimal water loss -- sometimes as few as 10 gallons.
