secondary valves
Explanation:
However, this term doesn't appear -per se- in the cited text:

"Main distribution valves... A program has been implemented throughout the province to replace 200 valves having a diameter of fewer than 250 mm..."

250 millimeters, of course, is about 10 inches -- so even if 250 mm is their maximum size, the valves in question are not exactly tiny!

Cheers,
HC
