Beginning this week, City of Danville Utility Personnel will be seen around town implementing a specialized machine that allows the exercise of critical transmission and distribution waterline valves. Regular valve exercising is part of the City of Danville’s Annual Utilities Operation and Maintenance Plan, to maintain each valve’s useful-life and safety of operation. This program also identifies those valves that may require future replacement. Operable waterline valves are imperative to reduce water loss during line breaks and to allow system isolation during needed repairs in efforts to maintain customer service. Customers may experience short-term water pressure reduction in areas of the City where the valve program is being implemented. However, customers that experience low water pressure for extended periods of time are encouraged to contact the City of Danville Water Office (859) 238-1200.
