Webinar Type: Engineering Power-Hour
SUMMARY:Corrosion of various forms of buried cast iron, ductile iron, and steel piping is a serious problem to most municipal water utilities. However, infrastructure asset management tools combined with cathodic protection can reduce the number of premature breaks caused by corrosion. Properly designed, installed, and maintained cathodic protection systems can add years of additional service life to both new and existing water mains.
This webinar will provide the viewer with a basic understanding of common corrosion mechanisms and also present several real-world projects that have demonstrated how cathodic protection can economically extend the service life of both new and existing buried water utility infrastructure.
