Water Distribution Lines

During the past 45 years, Hiltz & Seamone have designed and managed the construction of several miles of water distribution lines. Within the design of water distribution lines is a computer modeling of the system to size the lines and often the design of Booster Pumping Stations and Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) Chambers. In fact, Hiltz & Seamone were responsible for all of the water distribution lines in the Village of New Minas and many of the water distribution lines in the Town of Kentville. Some of these water line projects were replacement of existing water mains, but many were the installation of new water lines to service un-serviced areas of the community, or for new development within serviced areas for the following clients:
