Complete Hot Water System Upgrade at Delnor Hospital Eases Serviceability, Ensures Safe Distribution
After years of accessibility challenges, the installation of new semi-instantaneous water heaters provided a needed equipment and design upgrade.

Transition of Lake Michigan Water Supply Complete with Addition of 52 Foot Long Prefabricated Booster Pump Station
With Homewood, Illinois changing their Lake Michigan water supplier, a new pump station was needed to accommodate the added travel.
