Attenuating the corrosion of piping and plumbing materials has become an important task for drinking water suppliers since the promulgation of the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) under the Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments. Aside from the public health concerns, the deterioration of pipe, storage, valve and ancillary materials and components due to internal corrosion also impacts the cost and efficiency of providing safe drinking water to the consumer.

This seminar will cover the basic electrochemical phenomena responsible for corrosion, the means of assessing the corrosive potential of drinking water supplies, the treatment strategies which can be employed for controlling corrosion, and the means of monitoring and optimizing corrosion treatment once it has been established. Attendees will leave understanding the steps required of a water purveyor to develop and implement a lead and copper corrosion control treatment program including pilot-scale treatment studies, full-scale design and implementation, preparing vendor contract specifications, and monitoring treatment performance.
