Our primary business for many years was providing Hot Taps for the COH contractors who were rebuilding the cities water and street/utility infrastructure through the COH CIP (Capital Improvement Program). The COH WLR (water line replacements) and NSR (neighborhood street replacement) jobs kept the tap trucks busy for decades! As Houston's growth boomed - we provided the TS&Vs that helped turn "rice fields into subdivisions". We broadened our solution offering to allow our customers to temporarily shut down water to offset for a new road or to provide a permanent valve solution to enable routing water main over a new bridge.
More About Municipal Water Line Services
Municipal Hot Taps
Mickie Service Company has more than 30 years of experience in the municipal hot tapping industry. Municipal hot tapping (or pressure tapping) provides a new branch connection to an existing water main pipe or pressure vessel. Our hot tapping service and municipal valve insertion services are performed while the existing water main is on stream and under pressure.
Mickie also provides commercial hot tapping service.
Municipal Line Stops
Our municipal line stopping services (also called line stop) provides a temporary shut-off and flow control of an existing water main by making a size-on-size tap then inserting a rubber plug or stopper into the line. We stock line stock fittings 4"-60" in all standard sizes, minimizing customer delay resulting from underground pipe uncertainty.
