July 20, 2023: Line Locating, Valve Exercise Demo and Training; Brownstown

July 20, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Line Locating Techniques

Line locating is more important than ever as today’s public works crews are smaller,

making efficiency, lost revenue reduction, and less down time more challenging to

achieve. During this training, we will discuss the proper techniques involved with line

locating. These will include basic locating theory, importance of grounding, direct

connections, inductive locating, frequencies, tracer wire issues, and problem solving. A hands-on

demonstration will be conducted as well.

Attendees can bring their own locating equipment to discuss with our instructors

any issues they may be having or repair questions.

Valve Exercising

This session will cover scheduled valve exercising programs. Some key areas to be

discussed are: extending the useful life of your valves; location verification, performance

evaluation, faster response in emergency situations; the right tools and resources

required to implement an exercising program; how much time is required for “your”

distribution system; priority areas/critical system valves/fire and safety systems/ hospital

and life related/line break response; getting started; problem potentials. Hands-on

demonstration will be conducted as well.
