English term or phrase: Corporation Stop
What is it called such? Why corporation?

This field-proven Corporation Stop incorporates the performance-proven design features of the popular Ford Ball Valve. It reduces the inherent problems of hard turning and of temporary weeping under high test pressures, which is sometimes encountered in standard plug-type Corporation Stops. The Ford Ballcorp™ is available in 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2", and 2" sizes, with most styles of outlet connections. It may be installed in either a dry main or a main under pressure with a standard tapping machine or saddle. The large wrench hex on the outlet assures ease of final adjustment in the main as well as ease in connecting the service line to the stop. Ford Ballcorp™ Corporation Stops are designed to withstand working pressures up to 300 psi.

agree  Charlie Bavington: and the fact that it is "usually owned and maintained by the water utility" explains the name, since such a company would, many years ago and in the UK at least, be referred to as "the corporation".

  -> yes, that was its identification

agree  DGK T-I: when UK cities and towns owned and maintained water supplies(municipal water companies)in the past,corporations were(city/town councils)rather than corporation(companies)-just to avoid confusion for the asker -from city council or from priv.corp(company)?
