• A previously installed Insta-Valve 250 insertion valve provided control for a fire pump removal without backflow between the water distribution piping and the water treatment facility. As part of an infrastructure improvement project, the City of Rock Falls needed to remove an old fire pump within the filter room of their water treatment plant. Unfortunately, the original system from 1962 did not have a valve after the primary check valve in the yard, thus making it impossible to isolate the repair area properly.

  • The Insta-Valve 250 provided a targeted shut down to repair aging, leaking water main without massive service disruption. The Village of Bald Head Island discovered one of their water mains was leaking. Roots from nearby vegetation had pushed a tapping saddle out of position, causing wear on the tap that eroded the pipe over time. Unfortunately, due to its location, there was no valve to isolate the area without shutting down the water system to the entire island, which was required just a week prior for a different repair. The island’s Public Services Director, JP McCann, wanted to avoid another island-wide shutdown, especially during the peak season when their population expanded to around 12,000 people.

  • Because so many options exist, it’s possible to get safe and reliable performance from your valves without overspending. Matching valve specs to your application is the key.

  • When the West Side sewage pump station in Onondaga County, New York, prepared to undergo its first major upgrade in over 30 years, the project required a bypass system to move a peak flow of 30 million gallons per day (MGD). C.O. Falter Construction was named the bypass contractor for the project and worked with Xylem to design and install a temporary system to convey the full amount of flow.

  • Godwin’s Dri-Prime 16-in. pump ran a sewer bypass system continuously for a month without issues while the city of Raleigh, North Carolina, replaced a major outfall line feeding its wastewater treatment plant. The Dri-Prime NC350 combined Flygt N-technology with its innovative self-cleaning impeller and Godwin Field Smart Technology, which provides 24/7 remote monitoring of the pump.

  • The town of Greenwich, Connecticut’s existing 54-in. diameter concrete sanitary sewer line, which carried nearly all of the town’s wastewater fl ow, was being attacked by hydrogen sulfide and deteriorating. After a condition assessment, it was determined that this critical infrastructure should be rehabilitated as soon as possible. In order to complete the sanitary sewer rehabilitation while maintaining treatment operations, a 40.9 million gallons-per-day temporary bypass system was needed to divert the fl ow from three areas of town to the wastewater treatment plant.

  • New York’s Albany County was in the process of updating its wastewater treatment plants when it turned to BCI Construction for a temporary bypass system to transfer 88 million gallons per day during the project. The county wanted to avoid interruption of sewer service and needed a solution that would allow it to continue replacing its old chlorine bleaching tanks with UV technology.

  • In Colorado, the project team for an expansion and renovation of a wastewater treatment plant was in need of a bypass system to move a peak flow of 128 million gallons per day. Wagner Rents, the rental arm of Wagner Equipment and Xylem’s Godwin and Flygt distributor in Colorado was named the bypass contractor for this portion of the job. Wagner Rents pump team worked with Xylem to design and install a temporary system to convey the full amount of flow. The solution that followed also provided the treatment plant with the ability to integrate the temporary bypass into its SCADA system and to log the data as if it was its own permanent pumping system.

  • The devastating impact of Hurricane Sandy on New York City and the Northeast U.S. surprised some, but the people at Xylem were not among them. Xylem’s dedicated water professionals stood ready to fight the surging seawaters and torrential rainfall that threatened thousands of homes and commercial properties in Sandy’s path.

  • Mayfield Creek in Fulton County, New York, is an arterial body that flows out of Great Sacandaga Lake for approximately four miles through farmland and the upstate countryside. At several points along the way, the creek runs through culverts and under bridge structures, as highways and local roads intersect its path. During an inspection, it became clear that one major culvert – 140 feet long, 15 feet tall and running under heavily traveled Route 30 – had outlived its expected life. The 10-guage corrugated steel structure was deteriorated and needed to be repaired – with as little disruption to Route 30 traffic patterns as possible.
