Tapping Watermains in the City

August 17, 2016

Enwin or WUC's Distribution model has been changing over the past few years and we have been allowing Contractors to take on more work on the potable system, such as main and service repairs, some smaller size taps, installations, etc. providing there is a Certified Enwin/ WUC representative on site.

Also, over the past few years we have stopped doing "larger taps" for neighbouring Municipalities. They are now using experienced sub-contractors to complete this work.

With that being said, effective Jan. 1, 2017 Enwin/ WUC will no longer be performing any size "taps" on watermains in the City of Windsor and will only supply a Certified Representative to witness the work when required.

 

We do not have a certification process nor a pre-approval process for hot tapping.


Our inspectors will be on site during the tapping process to observe and make sure that our standards for materials and hygiene are being observed by the contractor doing the tap. As long as the
contractor performing the tap can demonstrate that they can do the tap in accordance with the manual associated with the tapping equipment being used as well as observance of our standards would be sufficient for us.

Tapping equipment suppliers such as Mueller, Ridgid, Reed, Hydrastop offer training for the equipment that they sell, a letter from the supplier with the contractors name on it would be satisfactory proof of proficiency.
