Nashville Metro Water, Distribution System Valve Condition Assessment and GIS/CMMS Integration: 30,000 Valves, 1,500 Valves 16” or Larger
Team members from Hydromax USA were selected to help improve Metro Water’s ability to manage and maintain its water system by locating and assessing the condition of water valves throughout its service area. Routine and emergency valve maintenance and repair have been considerably difficult, and in some cases impossible, because locations of many of the valves in Metro Water Services’ water system were never recorded when they were installed between 1950 and 1970. The project helped MWS to gain more confidence in their distribution system and more efficiently utilize their limited in house resources for other system demands. Located in Nashville, Tennessee, MWS supplies drinking water services throughout Nashville, Davidson County and the surrounding area to more than 177,000 customers.
