Municipal Water And Gas Utility
The health and well being of communities depend on the integrity of municipal and institutional water systems. When dealing with these systems it is critical that a dependable water supply is not compromised by shutdown. Whether to expand, rebuild or replace system sections, Topaz has over 50 years experience dealing with these situations.
Topaz, Inc. has worked in a multitude of areas where water system functionality was critical. From surgery centers, hospitals, municipal water systems and building fire suppression lines, we understand the risk associated with system shutdown.
It was for this reason that a municipality in Florida contacted Topaz when substantial growth began putting a strain on the city's water supply system. Engineers were forced to expand, requiring several 24" lines to be tied into an existing supply line.
The engineers contacted Topaz for a solution. The Topaz service department recommended that mechanical tapping tees be bolted on the line and that 24” hot taps be made through full opening, full port gate valves. The municipality agreed and Topaz supplied the mechanical tapping tees, hot tap equipment and hot tap technician. Topaz expedited delivery of the mechanical tapping tees, our hot tap technicians were made available to meet the customer’s accelerated work schedule, and the project was completed ahead of time and at no additional cost to the municipality.
