Default Water services industry?

Anyone here work in water distribution for a municipality or performs hot taps or something similar? Just looking to network a little if anyone here does.

Gracious that's a big line. I don't think our valves would fit on that guy

My brother is a assistant manager at a waste water plant, I think he’s working on his B license.

Not exactly as you asked, but been in the water infrastructure market since I was in college.

I worked for a GC that built elevated tanks for 10 years and now have my own company that provides asset management services directly to the end users.

I haven't been to fork in years, when did they do the pump station, and where is it located?

I was doing a suite a/c call on a mid rise office bldg. on Stemmons xpwy in the mid 90's when I noticed a drawing on the wall of a large pumphouse. I asked the older gentleman working there if it was for any of the local lakes. Turns out he was the design engineer for most of the stations in this area. We had a good discussion and I asked him about Lake Fork. He opened a drawer and pulled out a set of plans, and said he hoped it would get built while he was still alive. He appeared to be about 70 then, and I hope he got to see it. I always appreciated that he took the time to have a discussion with the a/c guy that was a total stranger. I have always been fascinated by large mechanical things, so the visit kind of made my day.
