Valve Crew Safety - According to A.W.W.A every valve should be operated through a full cycle on a schedule designed to prevent a buildup of tuberculation or deposits that could cause the valve to be ineffective or inoperable or may result in a part of the water system that does not get flushed regularly. In order to keep the water system operating properly, we are charged with the task of making sure valves will open and close when required and are able to isolate portions of the water system in addition to ensuring water quality and adequate fire flows. Properly operating valves also are important as it relates to Homeland Security for if someone were to compromise the water system, the ability to quickly control and isolate the flow of water could be hampered.
Topics included in this safety video are: safety considerations, traffic control, PPE, how the task will be approached and how the highest degree of safety will be achieved, and gate well caps.
