AWWA-64393 2014 External Corrosion of Water Infrastructure DVD


This video focuses on external corrosion in water utility distribution systems

It's estimated that corrosion costs drinking water and sewer systems 36 billion dollars a year in the United States alone. For water utilities, corrosion causes premature failure of system components. This not only leads to increased operating expenses, it presents a potential risk to public health. External Corrosion of Water Infrastructure DVD focuses on external corrosion in water utility distribution systems. It will discuss how corrosion works, how to evaluate corrosion potential, methods utilities use to prevent or slow corrosion, and operational considerations when working with pipe and fittings in the field. Theoretical concepts of basic chemistry and electrical circuitry theory will be explained as part of the program. DVD, (17 minutes), Subtitled in English
