AVT, Western Water Works form partnership
02 December 2019
Advanced Valve Technologies (AVT) and Western Water Works Supply Company have formed a partnership that will see the innovative AVT EZ ValveTM become even more accessible to the water utilities of Southern California.
Western Water Works prides itself on providing smooth running jobs from start to finish to the underground contractors and water utilities within their region and will be working with AVT to educate local water professionals on the virtues and values of inline insertion valve technology – valves that can be installed without the need to shut off the water.
Ranked among the industry’s most innovative solutions, the AVT EZ Valve is designed with an integrated isolation gate that allows the valve to be installed under pressure in challenging conditions. Using this valve allows customers to improve uptime and achieve greater environmental stewardship because it enables faster restoration than alternative solutions, has no negative effect on pipe integrity and can be installed at full pressure with no need to shut off the water supply.
The Western Water Works team has in in-depth knowledge of their region and knows that ensuring the industry truly understands how inline insertion valve technology works, will be key when it comes to installing the EZ Valve in their area.
Six water operators have successfully completed AVT’s innovative training program and are ready to start installing 4″-12” valves – which usually takes under an hour. More operators are scheduled for training over the coming weeks.
