Iron pipe corrosion in distribution systems

Iron pipe corrosion in distribution systems

American Water Works Association Journal 93(7): 88-100, July

Iron pipe corrosion is extremely complicated and is affected by practically every physical, chemical, and biological parameter in water distribution systems. This work provides a summary of key factors that utilities must evaluate in order to mitigate iron corrosion problems. Utilities should also consider potential secondary impacts on corrosion because of compliance efforts for new regulations.
