AWWA-M58 2011 Internal Corrosion Control in Water Distribution Systems


AWWA M58 Internal Corrosion Control in Water Distribution Systemsprovides information on the causes of internal corrosion in water pipelines and practical guidance on corrosion prevention and removal. Water professionals know much about the problems caused by internal pipe corrosion: water quality degradation, customer complaints, reduced pipe capacity, and home plumbing failures. Surprisingly, however, there is little practical guidance available to public water systems regarding the design, implementation, and maintenance of an ongoing internal corrosion control program. That is what prompted the publication of this AWWA manual of water supply practices. With this practical manual, you’ll know how to control internal corrosion in metal pipes and plumbing pipes, ensure compliance with the USEPA’s Lead and Copper Rule, and provide the best water quality to your water customers.

M58 has everything you need about internal corrosion:

Causes of internal corrosion in water distribution systems
  • Pipe problems and aesthetic and health issues caused by internal pipe corrosion
  • Planning and implementing a monitoring and control program
  • Advantages, disadvantages, and comparative costs of corrosion control chemicals
  • Performing bench tests and pilot tests
  • Maintaining excellent water quality between the treatment plant and customer taps
