Effectively managing valves as an asset can have a significant impact both for the water utility and the customer. This revised manual covers valve selection and installation as well as the importance of location, condition, and frequency of operation. The updated figures show commonly used valves and their components, including: globe; butterfly; plug; ball; cone; and gate. Special-use valves are also discussed, but the intent here is only to introduce their availability and applications. The authors incorporate the latest methodologies and technologies for handling, inspecting, shipping, and storing valves and their associated parts. A brief history of valves and an overview of the theory and flow characteristics of valves provides context. Valves are an indispensable component of the water distribution system; they can regulate, modulate or isolate. This manual provides essential information for water operators, technicians, and engineers on this powerful appurtenance.

This third edition of M22 contains information needed to estimate customer demand and maximum expected flow that can be used to size new service lines and meters. This edition expands the ways to approach the sizing of water service lines and meters and offers improved methods for the sizing of dedicated irrigation meters. M22 includes a useful field method called demand profiling that can be used to evaluate actual customer use patterns and help optimize meter size selection. The data presented in M22 were obtained from field measurements, utility surveys, technical publications, and hydraulic design calculations. This manual emphasizes that utilities having more information about a specific sizing situation will result in the best sizing decision from the tap to the meter. This information has been condensed into a simplified format to assist readers in addressing most common service conditions. The methods contained in this manual are appropriate for water utility managers, engineers, planners, technicians, field operations personnel, and consultants involved with designing and constructing projects requiring water service.
